It is just a few more bakes till we finish Bake-A-thon. Check out Champa, Priya and Veena in this Bake-a-thon. Day 28 and I have thought of Mathri..which is a savoury cracker. This is a favourite snack for almost all the Indians. The best holiday food as well. One can make it specially healthy by avoiding plain flour and substituting it with whole wheat flour(which is what I have done). One of my uncle had discussed this recipe when we chatted about Bake-a-thon. He mentioned that it was the favourite recipe which he and his dad loved making.So here is to cherish the father-son bonding…
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp onion seeds
1 tsp carrom seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
salt to taste
1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves
1 tbsp oil(warm)
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.
Add the warm oil in the flour and spice mix. Use enough water to prepare a soft dough. Keep it covered. Roll the dough flat. Prick with a fork all over and cut into circles with a cookie cutter. You may leave these on a tray to bake. Alternatively, fold each circle into half first and then quarter. Bake in the oven on a lined tray.
Enjoy these with spicy chutney or even ketchup. These would make ideal healthy Indian nachos. By the time I could post about Mathri…they have vanished from our platter!! My son said, “I thought, it is just for me and you all have some more in the kitchen”
