Layered Mathri / Nimki / Parti Mathri simple recipe with all tips , stepwise pics and Video recipe


Nimki or Layered Mathri or Parti mathri is very famous jar snack which has very appetizing favours and it’s very addictive. It can be ready easily and can be stored for almost a month ..

This snack requires only few basic ingredients . It’s made of Plain flour and basic spices like ajwain, cumins , chilli flakes and other. Layered Mathri gets its unique texture from the way it is rolled and folded .

Layered Mathri tastes very different and unique then normal mathri.. But making Layered mathri is not easy .

Do you know Mathris tastes great not only with tea / coffee but also tastes awesome with some tongue tickling pickle 😋😋😋😋 … Yes such crispy , flaky mathris and mango pickle is a deady combo… Try sometime …

Getting perfect crispy layeres is not a joke actually. If you don’t fold and seal the mathri properly , you will end up with raw part in inner most layer. To get perfect texture and result one has to follow some tips ..

Notes :

  • I have used Plain flour , one can make with Wheat flour or just tKe it 50:50.
  • One can use Kalonji / Nigella seeds too in dough to get more flavourful mathris.
  • Instead of red chilli flakes , one can use green chilli paste. It can be totally ignore too if you don’t want any spicy flavour in it.
  • One can increase or decrease quantity of spices as per choice.
  • One can also sprinkle some spicy tangy spicemix between the layers. One can mix red chilli powder , black salt , chaat masala etc and use it..
  • Make sure you Roll Mathris thin, if its thick then it will be difficult to cook the inner layer.
  • Seal the edges correctly. Don’t press much on layers , from there only oil can cook the inner layers .
  • Always fry mathris on slow to medium flame.
  • When mathris are crispy enough , high the flame for few seconds to give lovely colour.
