- 1 cup chickpea flour

- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1/2 teaspoon asafoetida (hing)
- 2 tablespoons melted ghee or oil
- Salt to taste
- Water as needed
In a large bowl, mix together the chickpea flour, methi leaves, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida, and salt. Add the melted ghee or oil and mix everything together. Now add a little water at a time and knead the mixture into a soft, pliable dough. The dough should not be too soft or too hard.
Divide the dough into small lemon-sized balls and shape them into logs or patties. Heat a pan over medium heat and lightly grease it with oil. Place the muthiyas on the pan and cook them for 5-6 minutes on each side, flipping them over carefully. You may also deep fry the muthiyas in oil until they are golden brown.
Once cooked, the muthiyas can be served hot with chutney or used as a topping for salads or curries. They can also be stored in an airtight container and enjoyed for up to 2-3 days. Enjoy your delicious and nutritious Methi Muthiyas!
