These super-tasty muthias made of nachni, methi and wheat flour pack a lot of good health and energy into their little forms. They make a very satiating snack, which provides the body with enough fibre, iron and calcium.

Serve these Nachni Methi Muthias immediately, or else they will harden as there is no oil in the dough. You will really relish having this with a cup of hot chaai.

I was looking out for a healthy recipe using nachni flour and tried my hand on this one... I have to admit that my little one just grabbed pieces after pieces of these muthias.. I was happy she had a nourishing snack rich of calcium and she was glad to have a new snack in the menu.
