I am squeezing my blogging and shooting in between because this is something which I am very passionate about . Anyhow I will just stop my rant now LOL , let me introduce this delicious dish to you all . I have made this as a part of blog hop with Culinary hoppers. This month our Culinary Hoppers team decided to make Gujarati Cuisine , which happened to be my favourite in Indian foods the subtle flavour and a wide variety of vegetarian/ vegan options those are the highlights of Gujarati Cuisine. To this delicious cuisine I am bringing a delectable snack which is super healthy , can be made in a jiffy especially you don’t know what you want to give your kids when they are back from school. This is a very healthy snack made out of chick pea flour , whole wheat flour ,your choice of veggies and some light spices . I served it with some masala chai and I was in heaven, you can also serve it with some spicy green chutney that makes it an excellent snack during rainy days . I am not talking much we will read about the recipe and how to make this delicious snack.

For the Muthiyas
  1. Grated Carrot- 1/2 cup
  2. Grated Zucchini- 1/2 cup (squeeze out the water as much as possible)
  3. Whole wheat flour- 1 cup (for gluten free use millet flour)
  4. Yogurt- 1/2 cup
  5. Cilantro- chopped 1 tbsp
  6. Lemon Juice- 1/2 tbsp
  7. Ginger Green chilli paste- 1 tsp

  1. Mustard Seeds- 1 tsp
  2. Asafoetida- 1/4 tsp
  3. White Sesame Seeds- 1 tsp
  4. Curry leaves- 2 sprigs
  5. Oil- 1 tsp
  1. 1. Combine all the ingredients for the muthiyas in a bowl and make a semi soft dough. I added the yogurt little by little because the zucchini did have a lot of water in it .
  2. 2. Make cylindrical shapes out of the dough , then steam it for 15 to 20 minutes depending on your steamer.
  3. 3. When the muthiyas are steamed , keep it to cool
  4. 4. Cut that into disc shapes and keep it aside.
  5. 5. In a pan heat oil add mustard seeds wait till it crackles, add whole red chillies , curry leaves, asafoetida and sesame seeds to it . Now add the cut muthiya to it saute it just for a minute thats it your Muthiyas are ready
  6. 6. Enjoy it with a hot cup of tea

    Loved these delicious muthiyas…especially the choice of veggies..Hey Paro!!..Is it chickpea flour or wheat flour? The name says chickpea flour but in ingredients, you have mentioned wheat flour…whatever they look yummy!!!
