Airfryer Samosa Mathri with whole wheat flour [Odia Nimki Recipe Baked by Ravneet Bhalla]

Have you ever tried making baked atta mathri at home? I have done it on several occasions and got excellent results each time. But this time, I varied the baked mathri recipe a bit and tried doing an Odia nimki recipe. The result is full of flavors - with salt and black pepper balancing the flavor and taste profile.

Baked samosa Mathri with whole wheat flour

The festive season is here, and the chances of guilty indulgence increase with that. But instead of buying those maida-based deep fried snacks to welcome guests home, why not add these homemade crispy mathris to your festive tea-time menu?
Let's compare this healthy whole wheat mathri with the store-bought junk
While the market junk is junk in the real sense devoid of any nutrient value, homemade is healthier and packs nutrition too
Maida is only empty calories that offers zero nutrition. Deep frying only adds to the calorie burden, besides posing a high risk of trans fat and triglycerides. Reusing the same oil for deep frying is routine in the commercial world. This is a seriously Big Risk to your health and well-being.
Additionally, they use hydrogenated fats that are a real threat to your liver and heart . Not only this, the amount of additives, chemicals and preservatives only increases the threat to your family's health.
Watch what goes in, my dear friends.
Every bite counts.
So why not make a healthier alternative at home with whole grains that are nutritionally dense and give you a feeling of contentment and fullness, which the empty calorie-loaded maida snacks do not?
Baking or airfrying instead of deep frying cuts down on the fat usage too while still retaining the taste and flavor of food.
So why reach out for that maida samosa when this whole wheat healthy substitute looks inviting and tastes equally delicious? Plus when you make a snack at home, you know what has gone in and can cherry pick the ingredients  to add your healthy touches.
Again, healthy is a good alternative. But guilty indulgence is not.
PS: anything that has been made in an Airfryer can be replicated in oven, otg, convection and on stovetop. Timing might vary from one appliance to another.

 How to make baked samosa mathri at home with atta

For this recipe of baked crispy samosa mathri, you need,
1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes, 1 tsp of black peppercorns (I chose to pulse them coarsely in the mortar and pestle. Add 1/2 tsp of jeera or cumin as well and pulse. 
airfryer mathri recipe indian

Mix with the flour.
Start adding the fat. Add 2 tbsp of mustard oil to whole wheat flour. If you do not like to use mustard oil, please use ghee or oil of choice. Rub the fat into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. Our aim is to ensure that the mixture retains its shape in our fist. If it looks dry, please add 1/2 tbsp extra of fat. Rub again. Please add kasuri methi if you like the flavor. I do so I rubbed it with palms and added.
Now let's knead the mathri dough with water. I have added 1 tbsp of water at a time and needed 3-4 tbsp of it. The amount of water might vary from one flour brand to another. You may need 3 or 4 tbsp of water to knead semi-soft dough. Should be a little tighter than roti dough.
Rest the dough for 30 minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 tbsp of besan with 1/2 tbsp of water. Keep aside.
Preheat oven, airfryer, convection, otg to 160 deg c for 10 minutes. You can preheat the airfryer for only 5 minutes.
Knead the dough for 1-2 minutes.
Take small-sized balls of the dough and roll them out into thin chapatis. 
Apply the besan paste on one roti and then place the other roti over it. 
Apply the besan paste on the roti and again place another roti .
Repeat the process until you are done with all the chapatis.
When you reach the last roti, place it over the besan paste and start rolling all rotis together .
We want to flatten out all of the rotis together. Do not press too hard but roll them out as much as possible.
Fold from one side and cut with a knife.
Take one piece and roll out with a rolling pin again. Now make a triange and flatten gently with a rolling pin.
Repeat with all the pieces. 
Bake the atta mathri samosa at 160 degree c for 14-16 min.
Check if done.
All the samosas to cool down before storing in an airtight jar.
The baked samosa mathri makes a healthy snack recipe for Indians fond of samosas and mathris.
Enjoy. Stay blessed. Stay safe.

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.
