9. Mathri :

My mom used to make the most khasta and kurkuri mathri at this time of the year. Her secret to khasta mathri was the moen/ moyen (oil) in the dough and that what decides how flaky mathri will turn out to be. The trick – pour warm oil/ghee in the center, gradually work on the flour till mixture is crumbly. Use fingertips to rub oil evenly into flour. Now, take some mixture in your fist, squeeze it tight. If it binds well and forms a shape then the dough is ready to work on. But if the dough crumbles and falls off your fingers than it needs more oil. Add enough water to form a dough.

10. Masala Peanuts :

Home Made Spicy peanuts are all time favourite.

11. Green Jali Samosa :

Different variation of punjabi samosa with spinach in dough giving natural gren colour.
