How to make?

  • Grate Lauki upto where you can see seeds; then don’t grate further.

  • Add 2-3 fresh chillies finely chopped.
  • Add finely chopped dhaniya (Coriander leaves).
  • Add a small pice of ginger grated.
  • Add satl per taste.

  • 2 tsp Dhaniya powder (Coriander powder).
  • 1 lime juice.
  • Add 1 cup regular wheat atta.
  • Add 2 tbs oats (or alternatively add 2 tbs Rava/ Suji/ Semolina).
  • Add 2 tbs besan (chickpeas flour).
  • Separately in a big pot fill half water and put it for boiling (keep a small lemon wedge inside so that your vessel doesn’t get black).
  • Now mix all the ingredients and make a dough.
  • Add 1 tbs oil in the mixture and mix with hands.
  • Now take a strainer and greese some oil on its surface.
  • And place the strainer on top of the pot with boiling water.
  • Ensure that water doesn’t touch the stratiner; we want steam to cook Muthiya.
  • Now take a portion of the muthiya mixture and form a cylinder shape;
  • Place it into the strainer kept above the boiling pot of water.
  • Cover the strainer and let muthiya steam cook for 20-25 minutes.
  • After 20-25 minutes check with a knife to ensure muthiya is cooked; knife should come out clean.
  • Let muthiya now cool down and then cut into small pieces.
  • Now it’s time to do tempering.
  • In a pan, take 2 tbs oil, let the pan warm up on medium flame.
  • Now add 1 tsp of Mustard seeds (Rai).
  • Once you hear cracling sound, add 1/2 tsp asfoetida (hing), 1 tsp white seasame seeds & few fresh green curry leaves.
  • Now place all muthiya inside and toss it.
  • Let it cook for 5-7 minutes so that you can crispy layer on soft muthiya.
  • Muthiya is ready; serve them with coriander leaves and some fresh lemon juice sprinkled on top.
