Mathri is a traditional North Indian crispy cracker, generally prepared and feasted upon during festivals such as Diwali and Karwa Chauth. It was first made in Rajasthan as a snack to last for days without going rancid. Plain mathri is made with refined wheat flour dough and salt and deep-fried to give a delightful crispiness. Athavale’s Methi Mathari is a flavoured variety to which kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves) and red chilli powder are added. What you get is a delicious namkeen with a distinctive Punjabi flavour. Munch on the crunchy delicacy with your evening cuppa or serve it in the traditional manner with pickles and chutney.
