Servings 2 people


  • 1 cup Wholewheat flour
  • 1 cup Plain flour/maida
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Ajwain/Carrom Seeds
  • ¼ cup Ghee or Refined oil
  • 8 tbsp cold water


  • Take 1 cup atta, 1 cup maida, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp oil in a bowl and mix it well.
  • Now add refined oil in it. Mix everything well and rub it in the flour evenly. The mixture of flour and oil should resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Now add  2 tbsp water each time and only mix the dough. U don’t knead the dough, it is just mixed cold water in the mixture and makes a hard dough. I took 8 tbsp oil for my recipe.
  • If time permits, u can cover the dough and keep aside for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Make marble sized even balls from the dough and flatten them slightly.
  • Roll each ball to medium thickness with a rolling pin or belan into small puris.
  • Prick each mathri with a fork.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai. When it is hot enough, reduce the heat.
  • Add 9- 10 mathris and fry them on medium heat till crisp and golden.
  • Drain them on kitchen paper towels to remove excess oil.
  • Fry remaining mathris in batches.
  • Store them in an airtight box when cooled.


You can roll a large piece of dough, and cut with a cookie cutter or in different shapes for your kids.
