This recipe proves that you can make healthier versions of almost any dish by throwing in a few thoughtful ingredients – like oats in this case.

Using oats and methi to make the popular Gujarati snack makes it a wonder dish for diabetics . Since both oats and methi are rich in fibre, they help control blood sugar levels.

Steaming ensures minimal use of oil making this a great option for weight-watchers too.

The oats methi muthia is also a winner in the flavour and aroma categories, and will go on to top the charts if you serve with green chutney for added zing!

  3. Arrange the rolls on a sieve and steam in a steamer on a high flame for 10 minutes. Remove and keep aside to cool slightly for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut into 12 mm. (½”) slices and keep aside.
  5. For the tempering, heat the oil in a small non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
  6. When the seeds crackle, add the sesame seeds and cook on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
  7. Pour the tempering over the muthia pieces and toss it lightly.
  8. Serve hot with green chutney.
