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.
