Tricoloured Mint Achaari Mathri

Tricoloured Mint Achaari Mathri.  This is my innovative version of traditional mathris.  It has flavours and goodness of achar(pickle), mint chutney and beetroot.  My family loves these Mathris and one can use them during festivals, as evening snacks or while travelling also.  These mathris can be prepared in advance and stored.
