No one would ever guess that this sumptuous dessert was planned with Weight Watchers in mind. It can be your little secret!


  • 1. 2 cups All Purpose flour (plain flour or maida)
  • 2. 1/2 cup sooji (semolina flour)
  • 3. 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4. 1/2 teaspoon ajwain
  • 5. 4 tablespoons oil
  • 6 .3/4 cup lukewarm water (use as needed)
  • 6 .Oil to fry


Mix all the ingredients except the water.

Add the water little at a time, kneading into a firm dough.

Cover the dough and set aside for 15 minutes or more.

Divide the dough into about 40 equal parts.

Take each part of the dough and make a flat ball shape. Roll them into 2 inch circles.

Prick each mathri with a fork in 5 to 6 places, so the mathris do not puff when frying.

Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat.

The frying pan should have atleast 1 1/2 inch of oil.To check if the oil is ready, put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should make the oil sizzle and come up slowly.

Fry a few matris at a time. Make sure to place just enough mathris to cover the frying oil.

Fry the mathris until both sides are a light golden-brown.
