Dried pomegranate seeds-1 tbsp

Caram seeds (ajwain)-1tsp

Cumin seeds-1 tsp

Coriander seeds-1 tbs

Cooking oil or Ghee-5 tbsp

Preparation

  • Sieve together refined flour,wheat flour and salt(A)
    Coarsly crush pomegranate seeds, pepper corns and coriander seeds.
    Take a big bowl and add refined flour mix(A), coriander seeds, pomegranate seeds, pepper corns,asafoetida, cumin and carom seeds.
    Mix all together and then add hot cooking oil or ghee and rub well
    Now add just enough water and make a stiff dough.
    Cover and rest for 15 minutes.
    Knead it slightly and make small balls from the dough.
    Roll the balls into medium thick discs and prick them with a fork all around,so they will not puff up while frying.
    Heat oil in a deep pan and fry mathris in batches on low heat.(first add them on medium heat and after few seconds lower the flame)don't overcrowd the pan.
    Fry till they become golden in colour,drain on a paper napkin when done.
    Store when cooled completely.
  • NOTE-
    1-The dough should be stiff like pooris other wise you will not get crisp mathris.
    2-Don't fry them on high heat otherwise they may become golden from out side but remain uncooked from inside and become soft after some time.
    3-You can make these with just salt,cumin and carom seed,if you don't want to add all the spices listed.
    4- For a easier version-roll the dough into a big medium thick chapati and cut with a round or any shape or size of cookie cutter .
    5-You can also bake them on 180 C -350 F for approx 20 minutes if you want to avoid deep frying.
