Ingredients to make Colourful Swirl Mathri

  • 200 Gms Maida/ all purpose flour
  • 75 ml oil
  • 1/2 tsp Ajwain or or carrom seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • A pinch of baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp red food colour

  • 2 C oil for frying.

How to make Colourful Swirl Mathri

  1. In a bowl mix the flour, salt, carom seeds and salt and mix it properly.
  2. Add the oil to the flour mix and incorporate it nicely with your fingertips till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add little warm water and knead it to a tight ,tough ,smooth dough.
  4. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions and add the red and green food colouring each to two portions and knead it properly so that the colour gets incorporated making it a green and red coloured dough.Keep covered for 10minutes.
  5. After 10 mins roll out all 3 doughs into 8" roundels, keep all the 3 roundels on top of each other, alternately brushing each roundels with water before positioning it on top of the other according to the colours you want in your swirl .
  6. Roll it out together into a 10" roundel. Roll carefully into a cigar shaped roll brushing a little water at the ends.
  7. Finally cut the roll into thin slices .
  8. Meanwhile heat the refine oil for frying in a wok, fry the dough slices 5-6 together in a medium sized wok for 5-6 minutes in medium low flame till they are cooked properly.

My Tip:

The Mathris are little soft when straight out from the oil when hot but turn nice and crisp after they turn cool.
