Traditionally muthias are either steamed or fried, but I have baked them here with just a teaspoon of oil and ended up with splendid results.

A tasty way to get a light baked snack on the table with minimal effort. Fenugreek (methi) leaves used enriches this recipe with vitamin A, iron and calcium.

These methi muthias are sure to gather praise from all those who taste this wonderful and attractive creation. These can also be added to a tomato gravy to make a delightful vegetable dish served along with phulkas .

Have to be served immediately or else they will become dry.Try other recipes like Baked Kale Chips or Ragi and Oat Crackers with Cucumber Dip
