LAUKI MUTHIA RECIPE| BOTTLE GOURD MUTHIA

GUJARATHI SNACK RECIPE

Muthia is a gujarati snack which was introduced to me by my friend and i got addicted to this healthy and delicious steamed dumplings. Few days back when I had a sudden craving for this muthias i told this to  my friend and the next day she sent a box full of yummy muthias to my place. Then next day, i asked her the recipe and tried on my own and this came out very awesome.

This can be made with many veggies, but i have tasted the bottlegourd muthias and the palak, methi muthias. Sharing the recipe of bottle gourd  | lauki muthia now.

NOTES:

  • As bottle gourd leaves excess water do not add much yogurt to make the dough.
  • While making with palak or methi leaves more yogurt can be used.No need to use water to make a dough.
  • Garam masala , redchilli powder ginger garlic paste can be added while making the dough.
  • The cylindrical dumplings can be microwaved also instead of steaming and i strongly recommend this too.
