Gujarati Muthia Recipe
Gujarati muthia is a traditional Indian dish, popular in the Gujarati region. It is a savory steamed snack made from a combination of besan (gram flour), vegetables, and spices. It is usually served as a side dish or snack, and can be enjoyed with tea or coffee. Muthia is a great way to use up leftover vegetables and make a delicious and nutritious dish. Gujarati muthia is easy to make and will be a hit with everyone in your family.
- 1 cup besan (gram flour)
- 1/2 cup shredded vegetables (such as carrots, potatoes, and onions)
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup water
To start, mix the besan, vegetables, herbs, and spices together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, sugar, and water. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until everything is well combined. The mixture should be a thick dough-like consistency.
Next, take a handful of the muthia dough and form it into a log shape. You can use a rolling pin to flatten it out if needed. Place the logs on a steamer plate and place the plate in a steamer. Steam the muthia for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. The muthia should have a firm and slightly crunchy texture when done.
Once the muthia is cooked, let it cool and then cut into small pieces. You can serve the muthia as a snack, side dish, or even as a main course. Enjoy!
