  • 1tbsp gram flour

You will need:-Yogurt gravey

  • 3 cup chaas(Buttermilk) sour
  • 1 tsp green chilli-ginger crushed
  • 4-5 curry leaves
  • Handful fresh coriander
  • 1/4 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • pinch of hing
  • salt to taste

Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan, add mustard and cumin seeds after spluttering, add hing. now add curry leaves and chilli-ginger. after few seconds add buttermilk.  Lower the heat because on a high heat buttermilk starts to curdle.  add Masala and mix well.  Now with damp hand take very small amount of dumpling dough and make with your fingers very small ball and add in gravy as quickly as you can.  let the cook dumplings for about 12-15 minutes. Add salt, but not much as dumplings already have salt.  serve with fresh coriander....

  6. Hi, This dish is so good, healthy and at the same time wise way to finish the leftovers.
    Will surely try to concoct my version out of this. have a good weekend.

  7. Thanks Muskaan, Gulmahor and Pari

    Muskaan, to ensure the muthiyas doesn't break in the kadhi use a bit higher ratio of flour to the amount of rice or khichdi..

    like 2:1(Flour:rice)

    Good luck
