Lauki Muthia recipe – Healthy Gujarati snack recipe

Muthia is a Gujarati snack that was introduced to me by my friend and I got addicted to these healthy and delicious steamed dumplings. A 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. The next day, I asked her the recipe and tried it on my own and this came out very awesome. This can be made with many veggies, but I have tasted the bottle gourd muthias and the palak, methi muthias. Sharing the recipe for bottle gourd  | lauki muthia now.

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