Aatey Ki Mathri (Suhali)

Aatey Ki Mathri is a popular snack of Rajasthan, known as Suhali. It is an easy snack to make. It can be made in big batch and stored in airtight container for quite a long time. These crunchy and crispy suhalies can be enjoyed with pickle.

Mathri is commonly made with maida (plain flour) but I prefer making with whole wheat flour as a healthy option. This takes me to my child hood days. I used to enjoy these freshly made hot Suhalies along with milk for breakfast during winter with my grandfather.

We have other snack options also like Spinach And Beetroot Sticks, Nimki Or Namak Para.
