Leftover Rice Muthiya




Indian Gujarati 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 leftovers, like rice and vegetables...most of the time.

Pair so well with Indian Masala Chai or Karak Chai

So what do you need to make this snack?  I can't give you exact measurements...


Left over rice, Chapatti flour, Semolina, rice flour,Gram flour and Millet flour(we gujarati use this flour) any veggies like mentioned above(grated). Pinch of sodabi carb,  Ginger-chilli paste, Sour yougurt, Oil, Salt to taste, fresh coriander,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 ingredients 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 it's 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 spluttering add steamed muthiya pieces and saute them for few minutes or until 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..
