  • A sprig of curry leaves

Instructions

  • To make Gujrati bajra muthia first make a dough. Take a mixing bowl and combine all the ingredients listed under “To Make muthia”.
  • Add some water and mix until it binds everything. Do not knead the dough too much.
  • After making dough rub oil on your palms and divide dough in equal proportions, shape them into a cylindrical shape.
  • Grease the steamer plates and steam these cylinders for 15-20 min. Steam until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • After 20 min removes them from the steamer and cools them completely. Cut these into small pieces.
  • Heat a heavy bottom pan and prepare for tempering, to this add all cut pieces of steamed bajra muthia into the pan and mix well.
  • Serve Gujarati Bajra muthia hot with green coriander chutney and enjoy.

Notes

  1. Adding water is the main precaution here. Since cabbage contains water content, so if required add water gradually.
  2. Do not stir too often while shallow frying. Muthias tend to get disintegrate so do not worry.
