Maida- 2 cup or 1/2 kg

Kasuri methi-1/4 cup or 50 gm

Salt- 1 table spoon

Baking Powder-1 table spoon

Oil- to fry



  1. Sieve maida in the open plate. Add salt, kasuri methi and baking powder to the maida and mix well. Now add 1/2 cup (approx. 10 table spoons) of oil to the dry ingredients. Rub with hands to mix oil in all the maida.
  2. Knead the maida dough by adding little water at a time. Dough should be stiff as it gets softer later.
  3. Cover the dough with cotton cloth and leave it for at least half an hour. Knead the dough again for a while to give it a smooth texture.
  4. Now divide the dough into small equal sized balls. Take a small ball in your palm and press it slightly using other palm.
  5. Similarly shape all the mathris and keep them in a plate.
  6. Heat oil in a deep frying pan or a karahi. Once the oil is heated, test it so that it should not be very cold or very hot.
  7. Now slowly add mathris into the oil for frying. Fry at low medium flame from both sides until they get crispy light brown colour.
  8. When fried, drain on a paper or cloth to remove extra oil. Similarly fry all the mathris in batches.
  9. You can store these methi mathris in an airtight box for any time snacks.
