How to make Healthy Indian Snack Mathri in Airfryer for Diwali
Start with mixing 2 tbsp ghee with 1 tbsp besan . Whip with hands or hand whisk until looks light and fluffy. Keep aside.
Now let's add 2 tbsp of ghee to the flours. Add salt, kasuri methi and ajwain. Rub ghee into the flour with hands until it looks incorporated. Take some of the buttered flour mix into your fist. If it holds its shape, it's ready. Sift this flour using a sifter.
Start adding water. I required 1/4 cup of water to make a soft dough. Water amount might vary from one flour to another. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, knead the dough for 1 minute.
Now make small balls of the dough.
Roll out each ball as thin as you can.
Rub the besan ghee mix on top of one chapati and then place another over it.
Again rub besan paste on this roti. Repeat the process until you have greased all rotis.
Roll out gently with a rolling pin.
Apply besan paste again. Make a fold from one end. Fold from another end again one over the other.
Make a parcel by folding the vertical side until mid way. Repeat with the opposite end. Do not fold over the other end. Just keep both folds parallel.
Apply the besan paste all over. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Then dust some flour on the dough and roll out gently.
Cut the ends from all side. Cut into rectangles.
Take one piece and twist it from the middle.
Give shape of choice.
Preheat airfryer to 160 degree c for 5 minutes and if you want to bake in oven, otg or convection, preheat them for 10 minutes.
Bake methi twisters at 160 deg c for 20-25 minutes or until they look golden.
While the methi marori is baking, your home will be filled with the aroma of kasuri methi.
Remove from the airfryer.
Let cool if you have the patience. Enjoy crispy puffed methi twisters with a healthy twist.
