Notes

Serving & Storage
In North India and especially in Bihar, mathri are served with pickles. It really tastes heavenly with pickle and a cup of masala chai.
Once cool down store them in an airtight container and keep in a clean place. Do not leave the lid open for longer, mathri tend to absorb moisture and will become soft.
Tips 
    1. I had both color cornmeal that is why used both of them. Anyone of them can be used to make this mathri.
    2. You can also roll out a big circle of the dough and then use a cookie cutter to cut the mathris.
    3. Store in an airtight container as soon as they come at room temperature. They get soggy if kept outside for longer
