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.
