Punjabi Meethi Mathri Recipe
Punjabi Meethi Mathri 

Punjabi sweet mathri is a very traditional and healthy recipe of North India. I wasn’t aware of these mathris till my hubby highlighted them. Actually he has taught me how to make it and its really very easy and less time consuming.

It is made using wheat flour and jaggery. Also some fennel seeds are used to enhance the flavor. I have used fennel seeds powder you can also add fennel seeds as whole.

These mathris are a bit hard not soft as the namkeen mathris, which I have already posted. In these meethi mathris you need to add just 2 tbsps of ghee per cup of flour. If you add more of ghee these meethi mathris would turn soft. So I would suggest you to stick to the quantities mentioned. You can definitely double the recipe.

Since these Punjabi meethi mathris are made of wheat flour and jaggery they are brown in color.

Ingredients: ( Makes 15 Punjabi Meethi Mathris)

1 cup Wheat flour

½ cup Jaggery powder

¼ cup Water

1 tsp Fennel Seeds powder

2 tbsp Ghee

Prick holes with the help of a fork. This is done as we want the meethi mathris to be flat and not like puris.

Now heat oil in a pan.

And slide these mathris into hot oil and then reduce the heat to medium. The oil should not be so hot that the mathris would burn. Also do not overcrowd the mathris in the pan.
