How to Make Mathiya

Recipe by Naiya Sheth: Basically we Gujarati people makes this home made recipe of mathiya during Diwali or any festival. But now it's common to make mathiya any time as popular anytime snack. It is very easy and crispy munching. It depends upon the choice to make it crisp or soft. But personally me & my family likes crispy. So to avoid extra oil and hard work I tried to add sooji - semolina to it, and it was very nice. As we know muth flour takes more time in digesting I always use the same quantity of whole wheat flour with it. So try this dry snack Mathiya today. And yes it gives filling effect in kid lunch box also.

Preparation time - 10 minutes
Cooking time - 15 to 20 minutes
