Muthiya variations

  1. Muthiya variations The Muthiya or Muthia are popular Gujarati savoury snacks. They are mostly steamed and very nutritious but, you can even fry them to make a crispy evening snack. They can be eaten as an evening snack with tea or for breakfast. You can incorporate a myriad of vegetables, spices and flours to make muthiya recipe variations. Here are some popular muthia recipes from our website :

How to make Mooli muthia

  1. To prepare dough for mooli muthia, firstly peel and grate the mooli.
  2. Also, finely chop the leaves from radish and keep aside.
  3. Transfer the grated mooli in a deep bowl. Other vegetables like grated lauki, cabbage, carrot can also be added.
  4. Add radish leaves.
  5. Add besan. You can also add whole wheat flour, bajra or ragi flour to the mooli muthia dough.
  6. Add jowar flour. The flour absorbs excess moisture and binds together all the ingredients.
  7. Add curds. Refer to our recipe of How To Make Curd Or Dahi At Home with detailed step by step images. They help in making soft muthias though they cannot be stored for a long period of time.
  8. Add coriander.
  9. Add ginger-green chilli paste and garlic paste. We have used homemade Ginger Green Chilli Paste which has intense flavours and is devoid of chemical preservatives.
  10. Add turmeric powder to give a beautiful yellow hue to the muthiya.
  11. Add lemon juice for a tangy flavor.
  12. Add fruit salt and salt.
  13. Add 2 tsp of oil in a deep bowl. Fruit salt and oil helps in making mooli muthiyas softer.
  14. Mix well and knead into a soft dough. After adding all the ingredients it is necessary to knead them well. Radish generally tends to release moisture, also the curd helps in binding the ingredients so, sometimes you might not require any water.
  15. We are using approx. 2 tbsp of water to combine the dough.
  16. Apply a little oil on your hands and divide the mixture into 2 equal portions.
  17. Shape each portion into approximately 150 mm. (6”) length and 25 mm. (1”) in diameter cylindrical roll. If you are unable to make muthias out of the mixture then add some besan.
  18. Arrange both the rolls on a greased sieve and steam in a steamer for 20 to 25 minutes or till a knife inserted into the muthia comes out clean. Keep proper distance between the rolls while placing them so they do not stick to each other on steaming. If you do not have a dhokla steamer, you can steam the fenugreek muthia in a pressure cooker without a whistle, microwave them or in a sieve in a pan and steam it by covering the pan with a lid. If they appear soggy after steaming, steam again for a few more minutes, but remember that it does tend to firm up slightly on cooling.
  19. Remove, cool slightly and cut into 25 mm. (1“) slices. Keep aside. If you try slicing them while they are still hot, the muthias will crumble and break.
  20. For the tempering, heat the remaining 1 tsp of oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
  21. When the seeds crackle, add the sesame seeds.
  22. Add asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds. Though muthias are a light snack but, the hing aids in digestion.
  23. Add the muthia pieces and sauté gently on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes. If you want slightly crisp and darker muthias then cook it for a longer period of time.
  24. Serve mooli muthia immediately. You can enjoy them with green chutney or ketchup.

This recipe was a big disaster as they turned out hard like rock ..There should have been something in to make it soft like bottle gourd or some other flour.
