Can you imagine chai without some snacks by the side? We can't! In India, the very idea of tea instantly reminds us of some greasy, decadent savouries. Samosas, pakoras, rolls, wraps and more - we get an extensive range of tea-time snacks that leave us spoilt for choices. Another popular snack option is mathri. A traditional Rajasthani food, mathri is a crispy, flaky hand-made biscuit that is salty by nature. You can also customise the flavours by adding different types of spices to them. That's not all. Mathri is super-versatile too! You heard us. Besides being an age-old chai time snack, mathri also makes for a perfect ingredient to add in chaat, sabzi and more.
