Sweet Mathri Recipe I saw few recipes used wheat flour to make Sweet Mathri and got the idea. But I have used plain flour in this recipe. You can use Whole Wheat Flour. Karva Chauth I around the corner, Sunday 28 October this post will help the beginners to make Sweet Mathri ina simple and easy way.
There are different ways of Mathri preparation, we can bake the methi mathri or we can fry it in oil/ghee. Some use sesame seeds as well. Today am sharing maida sweet mathri which very soft and flaky inside. I am sure its melt in mouth sweet recipe.
How to make Perfect Sweet Mathri in the Easy method:
- You can use either 2 cup wheat or 2 cup plain flour or 1 cup maida and 1 cup wheat flour. Sieve them before use.
- for the sweet mathri dough we can use ghee or butter in room temperature, not hot melted ghee or butter.
- Just a little water should use to make the stiff dough. I have used just 1/3 cup of water for 2 cups of maida.
- rest the dough for at least 20 mins so that we will get a soft flakey Mathri.
- always fry the mathris in low to medium flame so that it will cook inside.
- sugar syrup you can make single string or double string. if you dip in a single string you can get the shiny soft sweet mathri and if you dip in a double string you can get sugar crystals on top of the mathris.
Just keep these in mind while making sweet mathri.
