A traditional treat from the kitchens of Gujarat, the Tameta Muthia Nu Shaak will amaze you with its fenugreek flavoured muthias in a tangy tomato base. While the original recipe calls for oodles of oil, we have managed to recreate the same magic without any oil! The muthias are steamed, yet have a brilliant flavour thanks to a perfect choice of ingredients. The spice powders and flavour enhancers in the gravy are bound together by loads of tomatoes, so here again there is no need for oil. Now, you can top up on vitamins and relish the delectable flavour of this traditional dish without worrying about oil.

  2. Add the ginger, curry leaves, asafoetida and 1 tbsp of water and sauté on a medium flame for 10 seconds.
  3. Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander-cumin seeds powder, chilli powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

I was wondering how this recipe will taste as it has just no oil, the muthias are sooo good that one can finish them just plain with green chutney. But this when put in a subzi made of tomatoes it was tasting equally good.
