History of Mathri
If you think all Agra has to offer is the Taj Mahal and the Glorious Petha, you are mistaken.
A savoury delight that holds a place in the hearts of millions India’s has also originated from Agra.
Mathri is a crispy and flaky savoury snack that was born out of necessity.
During the ancient time grueling long travels were commonplace. So it became essential to have foods that would stay fresh for longer to help with sustenance. This is where the mathri came into existence. Now this snack is enjoyed the world over with its only true accompaniment, a Kadak Chai! Some variants of Mathri are also stuffed with a filling to add a distinct flavour.
