Mathri is an Indian snack originating from Rajasthan, and is something of a cross between a flatbread and a biscuit. Although often used as dipping snacks, I have found they go very nicely with a curry and make a lovely alternative to naan or pita bread.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 3 minutes each (12 minutes in four batches)
Makes: 22 servings

Ingredients
130g butter
130g wholemeal plain flour
130g white plain flour
tsp baking powder
tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp poppy seeds
tsp ground black pepper
125ml water
2 tbsp coconut oil

Method
