Savory Mathri (Indian crackers)

Indian snacks are amazing - but always full of carbs! These crunchy, spicy crackers, however, are very low carb, at 0.5 g net carbs for two pieces. You can customise the spices to suit your preference (perhaps paprika and cumin, to dip in guacamole). Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup Coconut flour (60 g)
  • 3 tbsp psyllium husk powder (24 g)
  • Spices, crushed together: 1/3 tsp whole cumin, 1/3 tsp carom seeds, 1/3 tsp fenugreek leaves
  • 1/8 cup butter or coconut oil for dairy free (30 g)
  • 1 egg
  • Heaping 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp butter (14 g)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water (or more)
  • Process
    1. First, melt the 1/8 cup of butter and then mix in the egg and vinegar. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients and the spices.
    2. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and incorporate until you have a crumbly mixture.
    3. Now add the boiling water: start at 1/3 cup, then increase slowly until you have a slightly sticky dough.
    4. Knead for about 1 minute, then put onto a parchment paper.
    5. Use a rolling pin to make a 2-3 mm thick sheet of dough. Then, cut into pieces (I made 40).
    6. Melt the tbsp of butter, then brush it over the raw mathri.
    7. Sprinkle with some salt over the top and, optionally, some red chili powder.
    8. Bake at 180-200? for 35-40 minutes until they are dry and crunchy. If they aren’t crunchy yet, you can turn off the oven and leave them inside to dry out.
