Sanskari Wife and Muthiya(Indian Steamed dumplings)Kem Cho?

"Biwiya apne pati ko"A. G." kyon kehti hai? Kyonki Biwiya SANSKARI hoti hai.........Bhare Bazar mein "ABE GADHE" nahi kahe sakti, isliye short mein A.G. kehti hai"         let me translate this in English for my friends who doesn't know Hindi!

"Why wives call their husbands "A. G."? because women are Sanskari.....In crowded bazar they can't call them  "ABE GADHE", that is why they say it in a short A.G....

SANSKARI is a hindi word, meaning culture, upbringing, a deep and pure reason to create a good human being, a good family, a good Society, a good nation and thus a good world to live in.

ABE means in hindi Oi, like you can say to your friend

GADHE means in hindi DONKEY..now you will get this joke, which I received early 6 o'clock in the morning from my sister in India, it was forward text joke...I read it out to my husband and we went hysterical...;0)), I thought I should share this joke with you all.....Now coming to my recipe....MUTHIYA

Indian gujrati style snack made by using your fists,(Muthi means fist) A very healthy.nutritious and very satisfying dish, way of cooking a mix of Vegetables and multigrain flours together and steamed. Instead of Bottle Gourd one can substitute Fenugreek Leaves/Spinach/Amaranth/Pumpkin and use the method to cook it.If so desired it can be eaten without seasoning it in the Oil preparation...It can be made from left overs, like rice and vegetables...most of the time, I use my left overs to make this snack...I hate wasting food and always look for ideas to make something else out of it...it's heart breaking that in some parts of the world food is very scarce....:-((...I just add whatever I find in the fridge and whatever I can find in my pantry...

So what do you need to make this snack?  I can't give you exact measurment...I never follow in this dish..


Left over rice, Chapatti flour,Semolina, rice flour,Gram flour and Millet flour(we gujarati use this flour) any vegees like mentioned above(grated). Pinch of sodabi carb,  Ginger-chilli paste, Sour yougurt, Oil, Salt to taste, fresh coriandar,red chilli powder, Tumeric powder, Garam masala and dhana jeera powder, Sugar, Lemon juice or dry mango powder.  sometimes I add pickle masala...Take all the ingrediants in a bowl and mix really well.  Use little water to knead a soft dough like chapatti dough. Apply a little oil on your hands and divide the mixture into 2-3 parts. Then pressing in your fists into cylindrical shapes and place in a steamer. Whichever method you prefer.   Insert a knife after 20 mins and see that it comes out clean, meaning its cooked. Let it cool a little and slice each roll into thin oval-shaped pieces.



 Heat more oil for tampering and add 1 tsp mustard seeds, Sesame seeds and asafoetida.  When they start spulltering add steamed muthiya pieces and saute them for few minutes or untill they get slightly golden brown.  Ready to serve.. Enjoy with Tea or any type of chutney or dip..You can serve as a breakfast too..

Wish you all HAPPY EASTER and JOYFUL HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
