About Mathris Recipe:

Mathris are flaky biscuits or slated crisp crackers which are mostly preferred for snacks and treats. It’s specialty is that you can make these at home and can store it for more than a month in an air-tight container. This is one of my favorite snacks, though salty in taste but I love to eat this with hot tea.
