A Gujarati preparation with perfect balance of flavours and textures!

And if you end up liking this recipe, which am sure you would, do try doodhi muthia recipe also.

Let’s talk about Methi Muthia Recipe

This is methi muthia. Fenugreek leaves are the main ingredient here but you can replace or add vegetables of your choice. Be it carrot, cabbage, coconut (did you observe that? No… no… you need not add only those vegetables that start with C, you can add other too) for example bottle gourd etc. You can even play with the flavours. I have added ginger chili paste. You can also add some garlic paste. I have used whole wheat flour, chickpeas flour and little semolina. Feel free to use any other flour such as millet (bajra) or maize (makka). I have prepared the steamed version. You can also make the deep fried ones.

About the Author

Author’s Name


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!.
