  1. Shift whole-wheat, salt and baking soda to a bowl. Add all the spices and mix properly. .
  2. Then add ghee and with the fingers mix nicely till it becomes grainy. Add normal water (room temperature) to knead the dough. The dough should be tight and hard, even tighter than the roti dough.
  3. Repeat the same procedure with beet root mathri and palak mathri. Replace water with beet root puree and palak puree to knead the dough.
  4. Now mix the dough in a way it will create a marvel effect on the mathri. Take a big ball; roll it like a big roti.. Now make hole all over the roti (so that it wont pop while frying) with a fork. With cookie cutter cut in different shapes
  5. Triangular shape is also possible but it will take more time in frying
  6. Heat oil in a kadai. The temperature should be low or medium. Fry the mathris in low and medium flame till it is golden brown. drain and let it allow to be cooled and crispy.
