And when it comes to celebrating a festival, something as grand as Holi, there needs to be loads of delish food as a part of the celebrations. One of Holi’s most special snacks to munch on is Masala Mathri and it is clearly one of my favourites.

The auspicious day of Holi is around the corner and most people celebrate the festival with pomp and glory. Along with colours, water balloons, and gulaal, food is something that adds lots of enthusiasm and fun to the celebrations.

If you are thinking of hosting a Holi party this year and wish to add appetising traditional dishes to the food spread, make sure to add Masala Mathri along with Gujiya, Thandai, Puran Poli, Namak Pare, Malpua, and more.

You can surely buy all these food items from any online store or any nearby shop but nothing can compare to homemade healthy dishes. And if you want to impress your guests with your cooking skills, here’s a recipe to make masala mathri at home.

  • To flatten the balls, use your hands.
