ACHARI MATHIS


Crunchy and tangy achari mathis - a perfect accompaniment with masala chai.

Ingredients:
Whole wheat flour ... 1 cup
Maida ...................... 1 cup
Fine semolina ......... 2 tbsps
Achari masala ......... 1 tbsp
Mashed mango pickle .. 1 tbsp
Salt ............. to taste
Ghee ............ 2 tbsps
Ajwain .......... 1 tsp
Kasoori methi .. 1 tsp (optional)
Oil ........... for frying

Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients together and make a stiff dough adding water as needed.





2. Take small marble sized portions and press with fingers or roll out into small thick roundels.





3. Heat oil in a pan. Reduce the flame and fry the methis to a light brown colour until crisp. When the mathis are done you will notice that they sink down in the pan. 





Drain them on a kitchen paper tissue. Store them in an air tight container when they are completely cold.
