Number of Servings: 4


    4 tbsp whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
    2 tbsp Bengal gram flour (besan)
    2 tbsp semolina (rawa) (optional)
    1 cup cooked rice
    1/2 cup spinach leaves-chopped
    1/2 cup grated bottle-gourd (lauki)
    1/4 cup fenugreek leaves (methi)- chopped
    1 tsp green chilli-ginger paste
    1 tsp garlic paste
    1/4 tsp pepper powder
    1/4 tsp cumin seeds (jeera ) and mustard seeds
    1/2 tsp baking powder or soda
    3 tbsp oil
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    2 tbsp chopped coriander
    salt and sugar- to taste
    2 tbsp grated coconut-for garnishing


In a bowl, combine the cooked rice,fenugreek and spinach leaves. Sprinkle salt to taste, mix it well and add the bottle-gourd after squeezing out all the liquid. Add all the flours and semolina, ginger-garlic-chilli paste, sugar and baking powder and knead into a soft dough, using water. Apply a little oil on your hands and divide the mixture into 2-3 parts. Then roll them into cylindrical shapes and place in a steamer. You can use a pressure cooker without the whistle. Insert a knife after 20 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 oil in a pan, add the cumin and mustard seeds. When they start spluttering, add the cooked muthiya pieces and saute for 5 mins. Garnish with chopped coriander and grated coconut. Serve the hot Muthiyas with Indian Chai or Green chutney.
