BAKED MATHREE –
Traditionally the Mathrees are deep fried in oil, but I made this by baking, a real lifesaver snack with healthy option.
21/2cups all-purpose flour
1 cup semolina
1/2 cup oil
1/2 tsp. coarsely crushed black pepper
Salt to taste
Water for kneading
Sieve flour and salt; mix with semolina, carom seeds and oil, like breadcrumb’s texture.
Divide the dough into small balls and roll out all the balls into small circles of 2 inch diameter and about 1/4 inch thickness Use any shape of cookie cutter, for giving the shape. Prick each circle a couple of times with a fork to ensure that it doesn’t puff up while baking.
Preheat oven at 180 degree centigrade and bake all the Mathrees 20 minutes.
Cool completely before storing in an air-tight container. Serve anytime with lime pickle.
