Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Crushed black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Ajwain - 1/2 tsp
Chopped fresh methi leaves - less than 1/4 cup
Oil to deep fry
Take a bowl add all the above mentioned ingredients mix it well.
Pour water little by little to form a tight dough.Cover and rest it for 15 minutes.
Roll the dough into a semi thick sheet use any shape cutter and cut them.
I have used a flower shaped cookie cutter.
Heat oil in a pan and deep fry in batches till light brown and crisp on both sides.
Remove it on a kitchen paper,cool and store it in an air tight container.
a) Fresh methi leaves always has a slight bitter taste,if you want to avoid then use dry kastoori methi.
b) Deep fry in medium low flame.
c) Prick the mathri with a fork once before you deep fry.
