Mathris are deep fried salty snacks made with refined flour (maida). They are popular as a tea-time snack all over India and are quite easy to make at home. They can be consumed directly with green chutney or made into a chat as in this recipe. The chat makes for a perfect tea-time or all day snack to kill hunger pangs and satisfy the taste buds.

  • Tamarind Chutney                                               2 teaspoons
