kharkharia suvari

Mathiya or Mathia is specialty of Gujarat made during Diwali. Ladies of Village get together and make many spcial Diwali snacks. I just love Diwali festival since it brings lot of happiness. I call it Gluten free and vegan perfect snack. Well, gluten can be hiding in many ingredients but this snack is prepared from lentil flour so I put in gluten free category but you always have to make sure on your side. Ready Mathia flour is available these days at most Indian grocers specially during Diwali and urad atta is available through out year.
