Mathia- spicy Puri

Mathia is a spicy purioriginally hails from Punjab ( I think so :) or Gujarat?? Actually this is how my Mom makes it ,but she doesn't know which part of India it belongs to. I tried to google it and ended up in confusion. Some have it as a snack; some others with sabji (vegetable side dish); But we have it for breakfast or dinner just like we do eat puris alonwith any curries,bajis etc. A slightly flavored puri with an appealing shape and so is loved by the kids.






Ingredients:



Maida/White flour 3 cup
Yoghurt 1/4 cup
Cumin/jeera powder 3/4 tsp
Pepper 1/2 tsp
Salt











Method:





Make dough with the ingredients mentioned above. 


Make equal balls out of it and roll it into circle like puris.


Then fold it into semi circle; Fold again into a triangle shape. Roll again in such a way that the shape remain intact. 







Deep fry in oil just like you do for puris. Some don't like to puff it up like puris. In such a case, you can prick the puris with fork once it is flattened and before frying.
