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.

Wheat Mathri Ingredients

1 cup- wheat flour
1/2 cup- suji
2 tbsp-besan
1 tsp- ajwain (carom seeds)
1 tsp- jeera (cumin seeds)

Salt as per taste
Sesame seeds (til)
1/4 tsp- baking soda
1 pinch - hing (asafeotida)
Water to knead a stiff dough
Kasuri methi and any herbs and spices you may want

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat
Yes, my dear…

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
