    • Mix the flour, salt ,cracked pepper and baking powder in a bowl. Add the ghee and rub between your palms until it takes the form of breadcrumbs. 
    • Combine the curd with water and and form a pliable but firm dough using this liquid. Cover with the damp cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.
    • Divide the dough into small balls and roll out all the balls.
    • Heat the ghee / oil in a kadhai or deep-frying pan. Fry the rolled mathris in a batch over moderate heat. Do not allow the rounds to become brown, they should remain pale gold in color.
    • Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat the process for frying all mathris.

      Note : After frying is completed, allow the oil to cool for 15 minutes and, while still warm, strain through a fine sieve to remove any bits of flour. Oil can be further used.
