Doodhi Muthia ( Non - Fried Snacks )

Doodhi muthia, here is another tea-time snack that is sure to please you. “muthi” means fist in Gujarati, and the dish is named such because the mixture is shaped into cylindrical rolls using the fist, plus it is almost the same size and shape of the fist.

Bottle gourd has a high water content and therefore imparts softness to the muthias. Hence take care while making the mixture – do not add more water as the doodhi itself will let out its water.
