Punjabi Mathri

Second day of cooking tea time snacks begins with crispy and delicious mathri .I can have as many mathris till my last drop of tea finishes in the cup.I always have a box full of these mathris in my pantry.

The main thing that I hate about this snack is, it does takes time to fry the mathris and my family would finish them in two days. So I have to hide the box in order to use it for a week or so.

  1. I know what you mean. The fried snacks don't last as long as we slog around preparing them. Mathris make a great tea time snack.

  2. Omg, this mathris are seriously irresistible, i can munch some rite now without any guilt.
