Jowar is an ancient grain valued for its wholesomeness and unique health benefits. It also has an interesting, rustic flavour that is sure to go down well with everybody, especially when prepared interestingly.

Here, we have prepared the famous Gujarati snack, muthia, using jowar flour along with other ingredients like grated cabbage, curds and flavouring ingredients like green chillies and ginger. Since the dough is steamed before tempering, the jowar flour also becomes easily digestible.

Enjoy these irresistible Cabbage Jowar Muthias with green chutney and also do try other variants of muthia like Nachni Methi Muthia , Palak and Doodhi Muthia and Quinoa Muthia .

I had always tried muthias with wheat flour, but this cabbage and jowar muthias is something different. The cabbage and jowar is a nice combination. Unlike other muthias, there is no fruit salt in this recipe, yet it is so soft. There is no need to add the fruit salt. After the tempering, they taste even better.
