Matri is a deep fried Punjabi snack recipe. We can have them as it is or we can prepare chat with them. 
A nice evening snack which goes very well with chai.


Plain flour – 1 cup
Butter – 1 ½ tbsp
Ajwain / Carom Seeds – 1 tsp

Oil to deep fry

Sieve the flour and add all the ingredients except oil.
Mix them thoroughly to form crumbles.
Now add water little by little and make a stiff dough.
Cover and keep for 15 minutes.

Pinch small amount of dough and roll in to 1" wide rounds.
Keep a little thicker than puris. prick with a fork.
Spread them all on a plate or on a wet towel.

Heat a pan with oil to deep fry the matri.
When the oil is hot enough, add few matri in a batch and fry till lightly golden, flip side and repeat.
Drain and cool to allow to become crisp.

You can store them in an airtight container to retain the freshness.
