Switching from Deep-fried to Baked Mathri

Multigrain Baked Methi Mathri is an enhanced and healthy version of the traditional Indian savory crackers called Mathri,which is made of just refined flour and deep fried. Baking is used as a method of cooking to avoid deep frying, however some clarified butter is needed to make these crackers soft. When stitching from consumption of deep-fried item to baked recipe, it takes some time to acquire the taste. The good news is that baked mathri can be stored long-term without spoiling, as long as you have the right temperature and moisture conditions.

Baked Methi Mathri Ingredients:

Multigrain Methi Baked Mathri (Fenugreek Savory Crackers )

NOTE: You may also add other flours such as oats and quinoa flour. Similarly, if you do not have any particular flour other than wheat, you may skip that.

Above quantity of ingredients will yield about 15 servings of 4 to 5 crackers.

Baked Methi Mathri Method:

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients first and then chopped methi leaves. Now add ghee to your flour mixture and mix. Mixture should be very crumbly at this point. Since, I was baking them I didn’t compromise with the amount of ghee (fat/mowen). Now start adding milk little by little making sure your dough needs to be really stiff. Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes and keep it aside for 30 minutes. Resting is necessary to develop the gluten in the dough.Baked Multigrain Fenugreek Crackers Methi Mathri
  2. Divide the dough into small balls and then press them between the palms and arrange them on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.Multigrain Methi Baked Mathri (Fenugreek Savory Crackers)
  3. Preheat oven at 375 oF and place the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 12 minutes on first side, and then flip and bake for another 10 minutes. Time will vary with the thickness of the mathri. So keep an eye on them. Once little brown from both sides take them out and let them cool down. They would get crunchy after getting cold only.Multigrain Methi Baked Mathri (Fenugreek Savory Crackers)
  4. Taste a few and transfer the rest to an airtight container for storage.

  1. Thanks for this healthy recipe .
    If we do not find a particular flour how do we just omit it or compensate it with any other available ?

    1. Hello Bhavana, thanks for liking it?. If you want to skip any of the flour you can compensate the quantity of that flour by increasing the quantity of other flours accordingly, but for almond flour I would suggest you to add one tbs of ghee as well since it’s rich in fat and contributes towards the total fat content of the recipe.

    1. Hello Aarti, thank you for so much for trying this recipe? I am glad that the recipe worked out for you. Love you for leaving this comment? Thanks once again, if you happen to try any other recipe would love to know your feedback.

    Hello,

    Thank you so much for the detailed recipe.
    I made this & it turned out very nice & tasty.
    The baked version is much healthy.
    I just made few changes instead of Methi, I added chopped Palak & coriander & also 1tbsp suji instead of Almond flour.
    I love trying your recipes they are very good.

    1. Hey Aish, if you are using fresh methi leaves, tt would be better if you make it the same day or after 30 minutes of resting time because methi tends to release water over time which will make your dough soft. However, if you are using dry methi like kasuuri methi, then you could possibly do it the next day because leaves are already dried.

    Thank you Rupali for this awesome recipe! I’m always trying to incorporate multiple grains and less oil this was just the match made in heaven. Taste so good, esp with some chai. Crunchy, yet soft. I was surprised for the flavors being so distinct, for being baked. Can replace this for deep frying any day. The fresh methi adds a great flavor to it.

    1. Thank you so much Lakshmi first for trying the recipe and second for such a positive feedback. You are very right that fresh methi and mix of different flours add so much flavor in the Mathris, these are now a regular snack item I have available in my pantry.

  6. Hi Rupali. I don’t have whole coarse wheat flour and my son is allergic to nuts, so can’t use Almond flour. Can you suggest what changes can I make to make them as perfect as yours? Thank you

    1. Hello Soujanya, you can sub Suji if you don’t have coarse wheat flour to add texture and for almond flour you need increase the amount of ghee, since almond flour is rich in fats adds fat in the dough.
      Thank you for your interest in the recipe. Look forward to hear back your experience.

      Thank you

    Hi Rupali! The recipe looks so interesting and yummy. What can I substitute for whole coarse wheat flour and almond flour? I don’t have both of them right now and also my son is allergic to tree nuts.

  8. Hi! What flour can I use instead of wheat? Also would skipping milk make much difference? I would like to make these gluten and dairy free. Thanks!

  9. I don’t have Bajra , ragi and Rajgira. If I make the matharis without these flours, will it still taste good?

  10. Hi Rupali,
    Saw your site, went through the recipes, loved them! Loved even more that I can order with you.?
    Question though: where are you located? Am I able to pick up directly from you instead of shipping? Are you able to make some changes to the recipes due to allergies, diet restrictions, etc.? Please mail your contact info if the answers are yes. Would like to talk to you before placing order. Thanks!

    Hi Rupali and Others

    As Rupali knows I recently ordered these amazing amazing Mathris directly from Rupali and May I say I am
    Blown away!! Such food flavor, so much freshness and loaded with goodness knowing that these are not even fried!! Everything from receiving order through delivery was soo smooth and amazing! Your attention to detail and love for the food shows in everything Rupali, even in the way packaging came- I have never seen a prettier pack for Indian food..you are a rockstar! Wish I could give more than 5 stars!! We are loving every bite of these mathris

    Thanks so much for this great healthy recipe. The texture and color turned out great – crisp, light, melting in the mouth yummy. However, there was an after slight bitterness which should be because of the methi leaves. I added the same amount as mentioned in the recipe. But I will make another batch with little less methi for sure !

    Your food spread is awesome! I prepared batch of this baked multigrain mathri by following the recipe. It tastes good & turned crispy but really dry. I used the stated amount of ghee and almond flour. Instead of maida, bajra & jowar, I used oats flour. Rest all the ingredients as stated in the recipe. The mathri I made are slightly thinner compared to the ones in your pics. Did I overbake the mathri? Please advise how can I prevent the mathri from tasting super dry? Thanks…

    1. Hello Rashmi, sorry that the recipe didn’t come out as expected. Every flour absorption level is different. Since you have added oats flour, the liquid quantity would also modify with that. If Mathris turned out too dry then add a bit more liquid and reduce the baking time. Hope this helps.

      Rupali
