With the help of water knead a hard dough. Cover dough for 15 minutes and keep aside for 15 minutes. Now press the dough and break 2 balls from it.

Roll 1 ball into a 6-7 diameter Puri. Make tiny round holes in a line as shown in the picture(with a fork) so that it is cooked properly from the inside too and does not get puffy like a Puri. Make holes on the other side of the rolled Puri as well.

Pour oil in a frying pan(kadhai) and heat, put Mathha's in hot oil. Fry on a low flame as you overturn them regularly till they turn brown then take them out. Prepare 2 Mattha's in this manner by frying in oil(Mattha has to be fried on  a low flame and this takes 7-8 minutes). Our Namkeen Matthe is ready.

Procedure to make Sweet Mattha

We have to make Plain Mattha first to make Sweet Mattha. We have ready made Plain Mattha so now we will make them sweet. This requires sugar, for 2 Plain Mattha we need.

Put sugar in a utensil, mix 1/3 cup water to it and heat it. Stir with a spoon at regular intervals. 3-4 minutes after sugar is dissolved and water comes to boil our Chashni will be ready.(to test Chashni put 1 drop in a plate, Chashni should look like a drop. Or you can put it between the thumb and index finger then try to stick it. You will see Chashni sticks tom the fingers and a thread like substance appears). Turn off the gas.

Put the ready made Plain Mattha in this Chashni and keep them on a plate to dry. Sweet Matthe is ready after Chashni dries up. Fill these Matthe in an air tight container for a month. Take out Mattha whenever you want and eat.
