Baked Mathri / Baked Salt Crackers

All of us like Mathri/ Salty Crackers a lot- the only problem is that its fried and thus unhealthy. I made baked Mathris so that I can relish the crackers without worrying about health problems. So the desi/ old fried mathris get the new twist of fusion (baked). All must try this healthy version of mathris. 

1 cup Wheat Flour
1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour (or Maida)
1/4 cup Sooji or Rava
1 tbsp Ajwain Seeds
1 tsp Black Pepper
Salt as per taste

3 tsp sesame seeds/ Til
2 tbsp Oil

Mix all the dry ingredients and keep aside.
In a small pan, heat oil and then add to the dry mixture. Mix well.
Knead the dough using lukewarm water. Cover it and keep aside.
Later, divide the dough into 2-3 balls. Roll each ball and using fork poke the rolled dough. This will help the Mathris to stay flat.
Using cookie cutter cut the rolled dough into shapes you like. If you dont have cookie cutter, you can use any small bottle lid and cut the shapes.
Preheat the oven at 350 degree F (180 degree C). Arrange all the  mathris on baking tray and Bake for 13-15 mins. 
Remove the cookie sheet when Mathris turn golden brown. 

Enjoy this healthy snack with Tea / Coffee or with pickle.
