There are a few ways to make nonveg matan at home. All of these methods require some preparation ahead of time and will likely take a few hours to complete.
- 1. Matan is a traditional Gujarati dish that is made from chickpeas. To make matan, you will need to soak chickpeas overnight in water. Once they have soaked, drain them and place them in a medium-sized pot. Add enough water to cover the chickpeas and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the chickpea are cooked through.
- 2. Another way to make matan is by cooking pulses such as black gram, chana dal, or urad dal. Pulses can be cooked in a variety of ways, but the simplest way is by boiling them in water until they are tender. If you want your matan to be more flavorful, try adding onion, garlic, ginger, cumin seeds, or green cardamom pods into the pot while they are cooking.
- 3. Finally, you can also make matan using cracked wheat or quinoa. Cook the grains according to package instructions in water or broth until they are soft. Traditionally, matan is served with sumac, green onion, and curdled yoghurt on top.
Making matan at home is simple and can be done without any specialist equipment. A pot, bouillon cube, vegetable peelings and a knife are all you need to make this dish.
- 1. Start by boiling some water in a pot. Add the bouillon cube and place the vegetable peels in it. Let them simmer for around an hour or until they are completely tender.
- 2. Remove the vegetables from the pot and add more water if needed to thin out the soup consistency. Serve hot with rice, chapati or naan bread on the side.
There are many benefits to making matan at home instead of buying it from stores.

The recipes that follow will provide detailed instructions on how to make nonveg matan at home free.
First, you will need a few things: wheat flour, water, salt, oil, and yeast. In a large bowl, combine the flour, water, and salt. Mix well to combine. With your hands, mix in the oil until the dough is wet but doesn’t stick to your hands. Add in the yeast and let it sit for 10 minutes while the mixture bubbles a little.
Once the dough has fermented, shape it into a ball and place it in a greased bowl. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour or until doubled in size. Once it has risen, punch it down and divide it evenly among 3 bowls. Make sure that each portion is about 130 grams (4 ounces).
Now heat up some oil in a frying pan over medium heat until hot. Slide in each portion of dough and cook for about 5 minutes or until golden brown on both sides. Serve hot and enjoy!
