Mathris are mostly prepared with all purpose flour. I have replaced all-purpose flour with whole-wheat flour for a healthier version.

Whole Wheat Mathri
Cooking is such a blissful thing which brings me the satisfaction of an artist.Cutting these Mathris before frying, trying to make them look alike is another fun.I used to be a helping hand to Mom as a child.
There is certainly an option, you can use cookie cutters to give them different look.Prick each of the rolled mathri with a fork to avoid puffed up. That’s the trick.I have added a pinch of turmeric for that color.
Wheat Mathri can be stored at room-temperature up to a week. But I am sure it will get over before that.They are so addictive! So make a good quantity.
