Masala Mathri ~Diwali Special


The month of November brings the Hindu festival of Diwali lasting five days. It is the festival of lights, its the celebration of good over evil. It is the celebration of the return of Lord Ram from 14 years in exile, after winning a battle with the demon King Ravana.

How long is the festival of Diwali ?

The festival of Diwali lasts 5 days, it starts with Dhanteras. On the day of Dhanteras people clean their houses and prepare delicious food to welcome the Goddess Laxmi, who is the goddess of wealth. Lamps are lighted and placed by the entrance to welcome the goddess. People pray to maintain good health, wealth and prosperity.


The second day of Diwali is Naruk Chaturdasi, this is the day dedicated to the worship of Maha Kali or Goddess Shakti. It is believed that Kali killed the demon Narakasura. It is a day dedicated to eliminate laziness and evil


The third day of Diwali is the actual Diwali day, this day is dedicated to the Goddess Laxmi. Prayers are conducted to the goddess to have year long prosperity, families light divas and visit the temple. Families visit each others houses and exchange sweets and presents. In the evening families get together and light fireworks. 


The fourth day is known as Goverdhan Puja also known as annakut.  This day is a commemorating Lord Krishna's defeat of Indra the king of the gods. This day is the starting of the Hindu New Year.On this day merchants open their new accounts book and pray that their business flourish. There is also the Annakut which is a mountain of food that are served to the deities on this day and afterwards distributed to the worshippers.


The fifth and final day of Diwali is called Bhai Dhooj. This day is celebrated to the love between Krishna and his sister Subhadra. On this day brothers visit their sisters houses and sisters pray for the well bing of their brothers.

How is Diwali Celebrated?

During Diwali, families buy new clothes to wear, buy gifts for each other and light lamps and set off fireworks. It's a festival of togetherness, sharing and caring.Families also make rangolis, they are traditional geometric designs that are painted outside and in door ways using colours and flowers. Torans  and garlands and decorative wall hangings are draped and the whole house is lighted with clay lamps.

What foods are prepared at Diwali?

A variety of sweet, savory dishes and snacks are made before and during the five day periods. The food is offered to the deities and shared with family and friends.

Some recipes that you can prepare during Diwali are:

Indian Sweet Recipes

Mango, Almond and Coconut Ladoos

Pistachiou Barfi

Kaju Katli

Coconut Delight Roses

Kheer Indian Rice Pudding with Strawberry.

Savory Snacks

Fafda

Savoury Cereal Chevdo

Mathri

Savoury Puffed Rice Snack

This year for Diwali, I have made Peda, Carrot Halwa, Semolina Halva and this Masala Mathri.


Mathri is a savoury spicy cracker that is deep fried. It can be flavoured with many different herbs and spices and it is eaten as a snack with tea.

What flour is used to make Mathri?

Maida which is commonly known as all purpose flour together with Besan chick pea flour are the main flours used in making this snack

What Shortening is used?

Butter gives the mathri a nice crispy flaky texture but it can be substituted with margarine or sunflower spread.

What  flavours can you add?

You can make mathris with just the addition of salt, cumin seeds and black pepper. You can also make the spicy version as I have made in this post.

Can you bake the Mathris?

You can bake the mathris if you prefer in the oven, the taste will be slightly different but it will still be delicious.

What is the difference between fenugreek and kasuri methi?

Kasuri Methi is dried fenugreek and fenugreek is fresh meethi leaves .Can you use fresh fenugreek instead of the dried kasuri methi used in this recipe? Yes you can, there is a light variation in the final flavours neve the less it still tastes great.



This Masala Mathri originated in the state of Rajasthan and it is a very popular snack that is available in the market all over India. It is perfect served with tea and can be stored in an air tight container for 3-4 weeks. It travels well and makes a great snack for tiffin's too.

Do check the recipe below to see how to make this delicious snack.

  8. Using either a square cookie cutter or round cutter, cut the mathris out and place them on a try, lay them separately and cover with a tea towel to stop them drying out.
  9. Repeat for all the dough by rolling and cutting all the mathris and keeping them under the tea towel.
  10. Heat the oil to medium, check the oil is ready by dropping a small piece of dough, if the dough starts to float up and there ae bubbles around it , the oil is ready.

Notes:

*You must prick the mathris before frying to stop them puffing up.

*Fry the mathri on low/ medium oil otherwise they will not crisp up.

*Adjust the chilli powder to your taste.

Sabudana Khichdi (Dry)


Last week the Hindu festival of Navratri started. Navratri is a Hindu festival that lasts 9 -10 days depending on the lunar calendar. The word Navratri is a sanskrit word, nava means nine and ratri means night.The festival is celebration of the victory of Goddess Gurga in the fight about good over evil.

Orange, Mango with Bergamot Sorbet


The last few months I have been taking stock of our families eating habits and I have been trying to cut out unhealthy snacks and refined and fatty foods. I have been making daily meal plans and making sure that the meals I cook are healthy and balanced with the correct proportion of vegetables, proteins, carbohydrates and fats.

Eating healthy does not mean that you can't enjoy delicious food and enjoy snacks. It's all about having a balanced diet adding healthy ingredients to the recipes I cook and eating treats in moderation that give you pleasure.

Incorporating seeds, nuts, energy boosting snacks, plant power shots to nourish and cleanse your body is a good way to add your family's diet.

I recently discovered Erbology an online shop that specialises in energy boosting snacks, crackers that are made with organic plants and activated seeds to create unique flavours that are gut-friendly and energy boosting.  I also liked their plant power shots which are organic, gluten free with no added sugar or additives.

There are so many new interesting and healthy ingredients available on the Erbology website, a few I tried were Milk Thistle Powder, Organic Aloe Vera Juice and Organic Bergamot Juice.

What is Milk Thistle?

Milk thistle is an herbal remedy derived from the milk thistle plant, also known as Silybum marianum.

What are the  health Benefits of Milk Thistle?

  • It treats liver and gallbladder disorders
  • Promote breast milk production
  • Prevent and treat cancer 
  • Protect the liver from snake bites, alcohol and other environmental poisons.

How can you add it to your diet?

You can include 7g or 1 tsp of Milk Thistle per day into your daily diet. You can add it to yoghurt, smoothies or porridge or any breakfast bowl. You can also add the milk thistle into cakes, muffins, tarts and even bread.



What is Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera known as Aloe barbadensis miller is a succulent plant used in alternative medicine. 

What are the health Benefits of Aloe Vera?

  • Beneficial for the digestive system 
  • Loaded with Vitamins and Minerals
  • Fights Digestive Disorders
  • Flushes our Toxins from the Body
  • Helps Treat Anemia
  • Balances Hormonal Problems
  • Boosts Immunity

How can you add it to your diet?

You can add the 50ml  daily allowance of Organic Aloe Vera juice  to smoothies, breakfast juice or flavoured water and enjoy it as a refreshing drink.



What is Bergamot?

Bergamot is a plant that produces a type of citrus fruit. Medicines are made from  extracting the oil from  the peel of the fruit, and extracting juice from the fruit.

What are the health benefits of Bergamot?

  • Reduce inflammation, 
  • Lowers cholesterol levels  
  • Increase positive mood

How can you add it to your diet?

You can add 50ml of Organic Bergamot Pure Juice to your smoothie, any juice or flavoured water. You can also add it to ice pop mixture, sorbets and fruit slushies.

I have been using these ingredients by adding them to smoothies, smoothie bowls, adding them to salad dressings and making herbal tea. My favourite ingredient by far has been the Bergamot. It has the most refreshing citrus scent and the flavour it imparts to dishes is absolutely amazing. I made this wonderful palate cleanser Orange and Mango sorbet incorporating the Bergamot Juice. It was so lovely that I have made the same recipe time and time over again.


I am sharing the recipe below.The sorbet is delicious as a palate cleanser between courses or even as alight dessert after a heavy meal. The addition of the Bergamot definitely takes it to the next level in taste and flavour.
