Baked Mathris

Last Updated on

This is the last post for this year and this Bake-a-thon. Today’s bake was one of the bakes for last month’s Home Baker’s Challenge. I chose a savory bake. I already have a baked mathri on the blog and today’s mathris are made with 2:1 ratio of whole wheat to all-purpose flour unlike the other mathris that were made with all-purpose flour. I baked these mathris 2-3 days before I left to India but could not take decent pictures as the weather was bad with poor natural light. Below picture was taken with my mobile phone.

Wish you all a Happy New Year!!

Baked Mathri

Source: Merry Tummy
Total Time: 28 – 35 minutes + more time for resting the dough
Preparation: 15- 20 minutes
Bake Time: 13 – 15 minutes


  • 1 cup Wheat Flour
  • ½ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • ¼ Sooji or Rava
  • 1 tbsp. Ajwain
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tsp. Sesame Seeds (I didn’t use)
  • 2 tbsp. Oil
  • ⅓ – ½ cup Water, less or more as needed


  • Mix all the dry ingredients and keep aside.
  • In a small pan heat oil, add it to dry mixture and mix well.
  • Add lukewarm water to flour to make the dough. Dough should be stiff and not very soft. Cover and keep aside for sometime, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Divide the dough into 2-3 portions, roll each portion into a round disc, pierce the disc with a fork. This will keep the mathris flat when baking.
  • Using a cookie cutter, cut the rolled disc to smaller pieces. Can use a small bottle lid or any circular object to cut into smaller shapes, if you do not have a cookie cutter.
  • Repeat the same with remaining dough. Collect all the scrapes, shape into a ball, roll it into a disc and cut into smaller circles/mathris.
  • Arrange the mathris in a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 13 – 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool and store in an airtight container. Serve it with tea or as a snack.
