Muthia Recipes | Gujarati Snack | Healthy Dish

Muthia is a Gujarati snack prepared using healthy flours such as gram flour, whole wheat flour, etc and vegetables. It is steamed to cook and can also be fried thereafter. I, however, don’t do that because the steamed version is too tasty, so why increase the calories and reduce the nutrients?! Muthia is tempered with sesame seeds and mustard seeds and can be finished with chopped coriander leaves and lemon juice.

Muthia is a healthy dish because

  • It is prepared by steaming and is therefore easy on the belly.
  • Healthy flours are used, therefore, filling.
  • It is a great way to introduce vegetables in the diet.

Muthia can be served for breakfast

  • Because it keeps you full until the next meal.
  • It can be prepared quickly and easily.
  • It can be customized as per the available ingredients.
  • Muthia is a great tiffin option as it need not be served hot. It tastes totally delectable even after coming to the room temperature or even after a couple of hours for that matter.

Just as muthia can be steamed or fried; there are different recipes for muthia depending upon the ingredients used! And that’s what this post is all about. Do try the recipes each one is so different from another and each one is totally delicious.

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!.
