Makki Ki Mathri | Makki Ke Aate Ki Mathri

Makki ki mathri is a deep fried Indian snack made with cornmeal. Makki ki mathri makes a perfect snack for evening tea and for the festival occasion. I am planning to make these on Diwali, but with a baked version.

Cornmeal is a meal ground from dried maize or corn. It is a gluten-free flour and easily replaces whole wheat flour in baking. Cornmeal is a fiber-rich ingredient.Makki ki mathri is a deep fried Indian snack made with cornmeal.Perfect tea time snack or festival savory snack.

To make this Makki ki mathri used white and yellow cornmeal as I had both of them. However, any of them can be used to make mathris. Cornmeal with cumin seeds, nigella seeds, sesame seeds, and salt is all you need to make a soft dough. Divide into equal lemon size portions and just pat them evenly in 2.5″ circle.  Another way to make mathri is to roll a big circle and then cut with cookies cutter.

Navratri Meal Plan

This year Navratri begins from 10oct,2018 and ends on 18oct,2018. Each day is devoted to different forms of Goddess Durga and consider a different color for each day. Navratri festival is celebrated keeping fast for one day or all nine days. Vrat ka khana or falahari khana is served during fasting.

There is a limitation of food items, only a few grains, flours, vegetables and spices are allowed to eat. Check my previous post “Navratri Fasting Recipe Collection” to know more about what are the foods allowed during fasting days.Navratri festival is celebrated keeping fast for one day or all nine days. Vrat ka khana or falahari khana is served during fasting.

Some people follow a very strict diet in terms of eating only one time. My father followed these very strictly. But if you are working or having kids to take care of, then small meals are great to consume in every 3-4 hours.  I am here with the five-course menu which is very easy to prepare, filling and make you energetic for the whole time.

Please consult with your elders while preparing a meal. I have already mentioned allowed food and some are customized based on family preferences.
