This delicious tea-time snack from Gujarat is named so because it is shaped into cylinders using the muthi (fist). Here we have made Palak Methi na Muthia using the microwave, so it cooks much faster and easier. Each batch takes just a few minutes to prepare. Temper and serve the muthias immediately to enjoy the best aroma and texture. One thing you need to take care of, is to squeeze all the water out of the methi and spinach before adding it. If you don’t do this, the muthia will not get cooked properly and have a raw taste.

As this recipe requires a little more cleaning and chopping the methi and palak, the time required to steam them in the microwave is very less...the tempering makes it more tastier...
