Yes its a Punjabi words, got popularity may be because of Vaishno Devi temple and Pilgrims there as it Lies very near to Punjab
Jai Mata di means Jai mata Ki

any ways I have full devotion for Mata Durga, But Gulshan Kumar and company have repelled me a lot from the Holy Vaishno Devi Shrine , Jwala Maai or Kamakhya is the place I wish to go instead of that red chunari and Tinku Jiya sorts of Bhajan's place

It is Jai Mata Ki in punjabi overtone where Ki is Di
For example, gaaon ki gori in punjabi becomes pind di kudi.
