Tea Time and snacks… They always go hand in hand… The tea time snacks for me with kiddos cannot be a daily affair so I prefer to stock it up…Being brought up in a marwari family, Mathri has always been a favourite tea time snack… Normal Mathri then again goes boring over the time…These is a Videshi twist to my desi stuff… And what more you can store it for a long duration…
