- Ghee - 1/4 cup
- Sugar - 1/2 cup
- Water - 1/2 cup

- Heat 1/2 cup water and sugar in a pan. When the sugar melts completely in water, switch off the flame and let the sugar syrup cool down a little.
- Take flour in a mixing bowl, add sooji, ghee, sesame seeds and mix everything well.
- Now add sugar syrup slowly into the water and knead the mixture into a stiff dough. Cover the dough and keep aside for 20 minutes
- After 20 minutes, knead the dough again until smooth. Divide the dough into 30 equal balls. Take one ball in your hand and flatten them with the help of your palm or you can simple use the rolling pin to roll the mathris.
- Heat enough ghee in a deep pan. Fry these mathris on a low flame until golden brown from both sides. Fry all the mathris in a same way.
- Mathris are ready. Allow the mathris to cool down completely and store them in an air tight container to enjoy for up to a month or so.
- Don't fry the mathris on a high heat. It will not be crispy.
- Don't add too much of sugar and ghee in the flour. It will break while frying.
