Mathiya or mathri is a famous savory snack from North India. It is specially made during festivals like Diwali, Holi or just made as savory snack to munch along with evening tea. Matharis come specially handy during long trips when you need something energetic and healthy to munch frequently.

There are many versions of making Mathris. Today I have made mathri from whole wheat flour and gram flour (besan). This fried khasta or crisp mathri recipe is a must try.  After frying, once mathris get cold, pack them in an airtight container and they will be fine for 1-2 months.

I have also posted other crispy recipes like Macaroni Crispies, Soya Crispies, Masala Peanuts and many more. Do explore them all.
