How to Prepare
    • First heat the ghee in a kadai.
    • Add the hot ghee into the maida and whole wheat flour.
    • Now mix all the salt, spices and baking soda into the mixing bowl.
    • Mix everything well.
    • Rub the maida and wheat flour mixture to mix the ghee and spices uniformly.
    • The mixture should have a texture as that of breadcrumbs.
    • Once you are done mixing, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water to form a dough.
    • You don't have to knead the dough for making roti
    • The dough should be a small ball.
    • After kneading the dough into a smooth ball, pinch a small portion of the balls.
    • After pinching small ball portions, roll them to have a smooth texture.
    • Make sure you keep the balls covered else they may get dried.
    • Flatten each ball by pressing them between your palms.
    • Now prick each mathari using a fork.
    • If the edges are non-uniform Or jagged, then that's alright.
    • For getting a smooth edge, you can cut using the cookie cutter.
    • Now, let us fry the matharis.
    • For this, heat some oil for frying.
    • Before frying the matharis, Check the hotness of the oil.
    • Fry each matharis by flipping on both sides.
    • Fry until the matharis become crisp and slightly brown in colour.
    • Make sure you fry the matharis on low-medium flame.
    • Drain all the matharis on a kitchen towel.
    • Let the matharis cool down.
    • Fry the matahris in batches.
