Mathari is probably the best snack i have ever tasted and tried at home.I am die heart lover of sweet ans salty matharis.I have tasted lot of mathri varieties but i love this because it is my momy's mathri version and completely made from wheat flour.
This Whole wheat mathry is spicy ,crunchy and salty in taste.The flavor of Fresh cumins is enough to drive you crazy. This mathsris becomes my family favorite and even my friends liked it too. Salty mathris and ginger tea is World's BEST combo according to me.

Since the festivals are coming up, Most of the indian homes are set to make some delicious snacks and sweets.Our indian kitchens are incomplete without namkeens.
There are lot of recipes coming up on blog. I really miss my little brother and mommy land a lot :(
Cornflakes chevda,Nankhatai and mathris are the most common snack made at mommy land during janmashtami.

Coming back to this Wheat Masala Mathris, Namkeen Mathris are originally from north india-punjab.It is quite popular in allover india and abroad.
I love this recipe because it is purely made whole wheat flour which make these mathris bit healthier.
You can even bake this mathris but i didn't tried baked version yet.
