Methi ki Mathri

Mathri is a famous snack from North India. My mom used to make two varieties of this snack – namkeen mathri and meethi mathri. I remember we used to gobble on this tasty snack all day long.

I am sharing with you the recipe for namkeen mathri here. I have given it a twist and have tried to make it healthy by using multi-grain atta instead of maida.
