Baked Suhali
Baked Suhali

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 16 Mathris


  • Whole Wheat flour (Aata): 1/2 Cup
  • Plain Flour: 1/2 Cup
  • Semolina (Rava / Sooji): 1/4th Cup
  • Salt: 1 Teaspoon or to taste
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Kalonji (Black Seeds): ½ teaspoon
  • Oil: 1/4 cup
  • Water: As required to knead the dough


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius or 350 degree Fahrenheit
  • Combine all the ingredients and make a stiff dough. Cover it with a wet cloth and keep it aside for 10 minutes
  • Divide the dough into 16 equal portions and roll into balls.
  • Roll each ball into 2-inch diameter circle.
  • Or else, you can roll the dough into a large circle and use a cookie cutter to cut them into circles.
  • Arrange the dough circles on a baking tray and prick them evenly with a fork, to prevent them from puffing while in the oven. Brush both sides with little butter or oil.
  • Bake the Mathris/Suhalis for about 7-8 minutes, flip the side and bake again for 5-6 minutes or until light brown and crispy.
  • Remove the Mathris out of the oven and serve hot. Or, allow them to cool completely and store the Baked Mathris in an airtight container.

Cook’s Note

  • Instead of baking you may deep fry the Mathris.
