COLOURFUL SWIRL MATHRIS FOR HOLI / SPINACH CARROT AND BEETROOT MATHRIS


Any festival is incomplete without sweets and snacks. As Holi is the festival of colours I made some colourful swirl mathris without the addition of food colours using the pureed spinach, beetroot and carrots to knead the dough. To make them extra healthy I have also added wholewheat flour to the maida.



Ingredients:
Spinach ........... 2 cups
Carrots ........... 1 cup
Beetroot ......... 1
Wheat flour and Maida ... Half and half (as needed)
Ajwain / carom seeds ... 1 tsp
Salt .......................... to taste
Ghee ..................... as needed

Method:

1. Boil the beetroot, carrot and spinach separately. Puree them and set aside.



2. Take flour and knead with each colour separately adding a little salt, ghee and carom seeds. Also knead one portion of plain flour for white colour.


3. Now take a small portion of each colour and roll out a roti.







4. Place the rolled rotis one on top of the other and roll out a little more so that they stick together.





5. Carefully roll them together into a cylindrical shape. With a sharp knife cut out a very thin slice carefully.









6. With a rolling pin roll the mathris to make them thinner. Do not use flour to roll. Prick them with a fork to avoid bubbles









7. Heat oil in a pan and fry the mathris on medium flame reducing it in between until they are crispy.






8. Cool them and store in an air tight container.
