Hi friends, how was your holi? Hope you had great fun and made lots of sweets and snacks for your family. So did I. But sadly I was not able to share the recipes with you as my computer refused to cooperate. Anyways thought I will share with you this Achaari Mathri recipe which I made on holi.

I was discussing holi sweets and snacks with my friend, Priyanka, when she told me about these special Mathris she makes with mango pickle masala. I loved the idea as they will be perfect while travelling and you will not have to carry pickle separately. It can get messy sometimes especially if oil leaks.

My family also loved the Mathris and it goes without saying that while travelling they will be my first choice.
