These crunchy and crispy nimkies and Achari mathris can be enjoyed over a cup of tea with family and friends. They come handy when guests drop-in at your place. Nimki and achari mathri is an awesome idea during every festivals .

Mathri is commonly made with maida (plain flour) but I prefer making with whole wheat flour as a healthy option. It is a good replacement for store bought biscuits.

This is one more experiment that went successfully.Mathris are eaten with a spicy mango or lemon pickle and are often served with tea.
This time I thought and mixed the achar with mathri ..and here the result came achari mathri .I loved it.PicsArt_08-24-02.16.24

I love achar ,without achar my food is not complete, so I mixed my favorite-achar to the mathris. The spicy and tangy achari masala stuffing gives a nice little twist to it.
