METHI MATHIS


Flavourful and khasta methi mathis to have at tea time. They taste so good with chunda too.


Ingredients:
Whole wheat flour ... 1 cup
Maida  .................... 1 cup
Fine semolina ......... 2 tbsps
Kasoori methi ......    1 tbsp
Ajwain /carom seeds .. 1 tsp
Ghee / oil ................. 2-3 tbsps to mix in the flour.
Salt ......................... to taste
Oil .... to fry


Method:
1. Mix the flours, semolina, salt, ghee, ajwain and kasoori methi.well.
2. Take a small portion in the hand and press it to make a muthia, if it forms the shape then the ghee or oil added is perfect.
3. Knead it into a stiff dough adding water little by little. Cover it and let it rest for an hour.
4. Take small marble sized dough and press with fingers or roll lightly to make roundels.
5. Heat oil in a pan and reduce the flame. Fry the mathis on low flame until crisp to a nice light golden colour . Don't let them become brown. You can increase the flame to medium in between just for a little time and bring back to low again.
6. When the mathis are crispy and done you will notice that they sink down in the oil pan.  Remove them on a paper towel to let them cool. Store them in an air tight container.
