Doodhi Muthiya Recipe /How to make Doodhi Muthiya

Doodhi Muthiya
Summers are here and the climate remains hot and humid most of the time. Such climate curbs the appetite and we do not feel like having elaborated meal like Roti, Sabzi and all. Specially kids get too fussy and you have to come up with cheat ways to feed them nutritious food. So I was looking for some one pot recipes which includes veggies, flour and is also quick to prepare. This doodhi muthiya is solution to all these problems.

Muthiyas are generally fried but here I have steamed it. And that makes it a healthier option. Doodhi Muthiya have all the goodness of bottle guard, bajra flour and besan. Bottle guard has good water content and keeps us hydrated and gives cooling effect. Bajra flour and besan makes it a filling as well as complete meal.

It is filling, quick to prepare and easy too. Just mix the ingredients, steam the muthiyas and give tadka. Its ready to be served. It does not need any fancy ingredients and the process is also simple. Even beginners can make it with ease.

If you want to serve it hot you can prepare the log and keep aside. While serving just give it tadka and serve. Or you can reheat it in microwave too. Do not re heat it on gas as it tends to stick to the bottom while reheating.

Generally these doothi muthiya are served with buttermilk which is again gives you a soothing effect in summer. You can also serve it as side dish or farsaan along with meal. It even goes well with pickle, curd or tea. It can also be served as evening tea time snack.

If you like crispy muthiyas do not add soda bi carb. This will make firm mithiyas and after tampering you can keep it on gas for a while on slow flame. This will make muthiyas crispy.
