Methi Matri

Making snacks for T time is a big job in my house.. It is really difficult to make something which all 3 (MIL, FIL, hubby) like. While I was browsing the net searching for some easy and quick recipe I came across Methi Matri.. There a lot of recipes on net for Methi Matri.. I have tweaked it a little to suit out pallate

You Need:
Maida / All purpose Flour - 1 cup
Chiroti Rava - 1 tbsp
Kasoori Methi - 2 tsp finely ground
Freshly Ground pepper - 1 tsp
Green Chillies - 2 tsp finely chopped
Ajwain / Om kalu - 1 tsp
Oil for deep frying

Take all the ingredients except oil in a bowl
Mix well
Add 1 tbsp hot oil to this and mix with your fingers till the mixture becomes like bread crumbs
Add little water to this to get a stiff Dough
Do not over knead
Keep covered for 10 mins
Divide the dough in 3 equal parts
Take 1 part and roll it into a 1/2 cm thick circle
Cut round cirlces using a 1" cookie cutter
Prick all over with a fork, this is to ensure the matri does not puff up.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel
When it is hot, reduce the flame to low
Place 6 - 7 matris based on the size of the vessel and fry on both sides.
At the end of the cooking process increase the flame to get golden brown matris
Drain on absorbent paper
Store in airtight containers and serve with T :)

You can add butter instead of oil in the 3rd line
Ensure you fry the matris in low-med flame to ensure crisp matris
Do not make the dough soft else the matris will drink oil and become soggy
