Muthia is a steamed cake of sorts. It can have a lot of variations like bottle gourd, methi, corriander, cabbage and so on. Usually people make it in gram flour but I gave this one a twist and made it with Jowar and bajra flour. What a stunner.
You shall need: [Feeds 2]
1/3 cup… Jowar Flour
1/3 cup… Bajra Flour
1/4 cup… Kakra Gahu na loth or slightly thick wheat flour. the closest substitute shall be Rava.
1.5 cup… Shredded cabbage
Salt to taste
1… green chilly [Finely chopped]
Red Chilly powder
1 tbsp.. Sesame seeds
1 tbsp plus 1/2 tbsp… Oil
2 tbsp… Yogurt
Few tbsp water
- Put the cabbage in a bowl with some salt and let it stand for 5-10 min.
- Cabbage shall leave water.
- Now add the flours and mix them with the cabbage.
- Add oil, sesame and green chillies.
- Add the yogurt and mix well.
- We want to make balls/cylinders out of this dough so keep it relatively thick.
- Add water if it is too clumpy.
- Oil a steamer tray and place the dumplings on it.
- Steam it for 12-15 min.
- Once done, take them out and let it cool.
- Cut them in rounds and keep aside.
- In a pan, heat some oil and add red chilly powder and sesame seeds.
- Toss the muthia in the pan and let it get crisp on a low flame.
- Serve as a side or with tea.
I have served it with Brown rice with spicy Broccoli. Recipe coming up soon 🙂
