Dudhi na Muthiya

You will need:- fist cakes ( muthiya
  • 250 g dudhi grated ( bottle gourd )
  • 250 g whole wheat flour or chapatti atta ( I use wholemeal flour, which is very healthy and coarse )
  • 50 g Dhokla flour ( if you don't have use ground rice and gram flour )
  • 25 g semolina
  • 100 ml oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp carom seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp dry mango powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp kasoori methi
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp ground cumin and coriander
  • 1-2 tsp achaar masala
  • 1 tsp Desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

You will need for tempering
  • 3-4 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds ( I use more than that )
  • pinch of hing ( asafoetida )
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Place all the ingredients of muthiya in a big bowl.
Mix very well to make a dough. Do not need any water as dudhi releases its natural water.
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 20-30 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 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, if you get chance do try this snack over the weekend.
Have a great long weekend.
