Doodhi Muthia Recipe | How to Make Lauki ki Muthia Recipe – Vini’s

What is Doodhi Muthia?

Doodhi Muthia is a Gujarati snack. Doodhi Muthia are dumplings made using bottle gourd and flour, flavoured with ginger, chilli and tempered with mustard seeds and sesame seeds. Mutthi is a Hindi word that means fist. The dish is called because the dumplings are shaped using fist. Muthia can be deep fried or steamed. Here I am sharing the recipe for steamed.

Let’s talk about the ingredients of doodhi muthia recipe

As such muthias are very customizable. You can make them with your choice of vegetables. Here I have made them using bottle gourd. You can use carrot, cabbage, coconut etc. During winters I prepare methi muthia, palak muthia etc. Flours such as whole wheat flour, gram flour, semolina go into it.  For flavouring doodhi muthia I have used lots of coriander, ginger, chilli, lemon juice and sugar.

How to make Doodhi Muthia

1. Mix all the ingredients: In a large bowl combine the ingredients listed under the heading for steamed muthia.


2. Shape muthia: Mix everything and form dough. If required add the bottle gourd juice obtained by squeezing the grated bottle gourd. Grease your hand. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Shape them into cylindrical logs.


3. Steam muthia: Heat enough water in a steamer. Grease a perforated plate. Place the logs on the greased plate. Put in the steamer. Let it steam for 15-20 minutes. Insert a knife or toothpick to check for the done-ness. If it comes out clean, the muthias are done otherwise cook further for 2-3 minutes. Take them out. Let them cool down. Cut into roundels around ½ inch thick.


4. Temper muthia: Heat 3 tsp oil. Add ½ tsp mustard seeds and 1 tsp sesame seeds. Add steamed muthias. Cook for 2-3 minutes.


5. Bon appétit: Garnish doodhi muthia with lots of chopped coriander and add some lemon juice and serve.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
