  • Heat a pan and add cloves, black pepper, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds.
  • Roast on low-medium flame for 2 minutes.
  • Switch off the flame, transfer the spices in the plate to cool them off and then coarsely grind it.
  • Place a pan on the stove and turn it on. Add dry fenugreek leaves and roast them for 30 seconds, take it on a plate and let it cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl add all-purpose flour, wheat flour, gram flour, and semolina.
  • Next add asafetida, carom seed (crush between palms before adding), salt to taste, roasted and coarsely ground spices and roasted dry fenugreek leaves.
  • Mix all the ingredients well.
  • Add clarified butter and mix it with the mixture first.
  • Now add water according and knead a hard dough. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes and cover the top with a lid.
  • After 20 minutes, remove the lid and pull out a handful of dough.
  • Press it in your palms to give a definite round shape. Place it on a chakhla and with help for a rolling pin to flatten it out. Maintain a good thickness.
  • Now with the help of a cookie cutter cut out dough. Remove the access dough and add it to the bowl with the rest of the dough.
  • Prick the mathri dough that you cut into shape with the help of a fork.
  • Now heat oil in a pan to deep fry.
  • Once the oil has reached the right temperature, gently place mathri in the oil.
  • Cooking until both the sides of mathri are golden in color. Flip frequently to cook them evenly.
  • I will advise you to cook it on a low flame for the best texture.
  • Once it has a beautiful golden hue, take the mathris out on a kitchen towel-lined plate.
