Rose Mathri

Today I prepared Rose Matar Mathri. Mathri is one of the most popular snacks​ in North India. It is a kind of flaky biscuits, made from flour, water, carom and cumin seeds. The creation of this snack is influenced by the need to have preserved food that will stay edible for days. Mathri
is served with mango, chili or lemon pickle along with tea. I made some twist, added some masalas, green peas and made this rose mathri. They look beautiful, as the rose itself, healthy and tasty. So give it a try and pour your lovely comments.
