Vegan Red Rice Crackers

These red rice crackers or mathris are baked using homemade curry leaves powder. The novel mix of red rice flour and curry leaves powder is incredible. Enjoy these oh-so-crispy crackers with just about anything.


  • 1 Cup Red Rice Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1-2 Heaped Tablespoons Curry Leaves Powder (homemade – I followed the recipe from Hebbar’s Kitchen)
  • Salt to Taste
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Crushed Peanuts
  • 1/4 Cup Cold-pressed Coconut Oil
  • Hot Water


Prep: 40 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes

  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients together. Add the oil slowly and rub it into the dry ingredients mix. Add hot water slowly and only as much as is needed to bring the dough together.
  2. Leave the dough to rest for 30 minutes. Cut the dough into required shapes after rolling it thin.
  3. Preheat the oven at 170 degrees C. Prepare baking tray.
  4. Place the crackers onto the tray and bake until the edges crisp up, or around 15 minutes.
  5. Allow the crackers to cool off before storing in an airtight container.
