Being born and brought up in Gujarat i fell i m a gujju in every way. I miss gujju food. Its sweet yet its spicy, that's the best part... u could eat gujju dal which would be sweet and yet ur nose would water cause its equally spicy. My hubby does not enjoy sweet food, the thought of sugar or jaggery in food makes him run miles away ..
I wanted to make a wholesome meal for myself, was not in mood of rice or chapati ..
My major points were... i wanted healthy, easy, low cal, tasty, gujju, no oil or say extremely less oil, filling.
Hmmm now wat would that be..? MUTHIA;S. i used to eat these a lot as evening snack during my school days :)
So here i share a simple yet tasty recipe with u all :)

Mix Veg Muthia;s

2 cup Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Rava flour
pinch of Soda bi carb
1/2 cup shredded Squash
1/3cupshredded Cabbage
less than half cup of finely shredded carrot
1/2 tsp crushed ginger
green chili according to ur taste.
pinch of sugar.
1/2 cup curd.

For Vaghar:
Vegetable oil
Mustard seeds
Curry leaves

Mix all ingredients and dough, normally u wont need water but in case it is too dry add water.
From dough make round 6" long dough sticks
Boil some water in a steam pot, put the sticks on a plate that fit in ur container.
And keep it on steam for about 20 min or until cooked. To know its cooked insert a tooth pick and check, if the tooth pick comes out clean ur muthia;s are ready.
Let them cool and cut them into rounds.
In a pan add some oil and add the vaghar ingredients once they crackle add the muthia;s and serve hot with coriander chutney :)
