SNC Challenge - June - 2014
Recipe Source: UK Rasoi

SNC (south vs North) and (North vs South) Event Started by Divya Pramil   

Mathri is a North Indian  snack made out of flour and spices and is deep fried in oilMathri is a deep fried savoury snack usually made of All-purpose flour  and spices. It can be kept fresh in air tight containers for days, and hence it makes a perfect snack with tea and Coffee. 

Traditionally ( or rather out of habit ) mathirs are eaten with pickles. Since Mathris are mildly spiced, hot pickle compliments them very well. It’s a general norm to serve Mathri-Achaar and some sweet ( mithayi ) when the guests visit, especially during festive time. I wouldn’t say Mathri is the most nutritious snack ever, but since its home made you can say its better to have Chaat from outside vendor.
