Baked Wheat Mathri

atta mathris
If you love mathris and are looking for a perfect baked mathri recipe, here it is. As a Punjabi, I am fond of mathris, but hardly make them, since they have to be deep fried. Secondly the traditional mathri recipe uses maida or all-purpose flour and I tend to avoid white flour for all the good reasons that I have shared with you all many times.

Here is just a recap of the same:








Then I experimented with a few ingredients to come up with a healthier version of wheat mathris. Am I disappointed?

Not at all!

The best thing about baked mathris is they turn out really soft , contrary to popular belief that baked version could be harder than deep fried one :)

My previous baked salted crackers post has given me the confidence to go ahead with this experiment.I call them crunchy diet cookies.

Traditionally mathris have been made in Punajbi homes for special occasions, be it wedding ceremonies, birthday parties, karwa chauth, and birth of a baby. People would host lavish parties and invite guests for days to celebrate their happiness.

Ideally traditional chefs would be hired for the job of making sweets, savories, snacks and meals. They would dish out delicacies for everyone to enjoy. Mathris are one such snack that is found in every celebration in Punjab. So this Punjabi is too fond of the traditional snack.

You will find that this makes a crispy, crunchy mathri that you can present to guests as Diwali snack or even pack homemade mathris as Diwali gift for friends and relatives.

So here's presenting no maida mathri for your guilt-free indulgence.

1/2 cup- suji
2 tbsp-besan

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos.
