Mathri is one of the favorite Indian tea-time snacks. It’s a crumbly, salty and savory Indian biscuit that’s perfect for serving alongside a hot cup of chai. Typically, mathris are deep fried and made with all-purpose flour. And this is the reason why many health conscious persons donot like to try this super snack. So I decide to give this traditional savoury snacks a makeover by making it healthy easy to make – you just bake these little biscuits in an oven with whole wheat flour in place of all purpose flour . The Oven Baked Mathris are flaky and tasty and one can have it without any guilt pangs.Mathris have a very distinct flavor due to the presence of carom seeds (ajwain in Hindi). Carom seeds are known to help with digestion . I have added some Rosemary and Spinach leaves in it making it more of an digestive biscuit… only a way tastier.
