While muthias can be prepared in varied methods ranging from baking and deep-frying to steaming, you will find that cooking them in a kadhai is not only convenient but also gives them a richer flavour and wonderful texture. Here we show you how to make amazing Bajra Onion Muthias using a non-stick kadhai.

It is important that you do not stir the muthias too often when they cook. Even though it might seem as if they are sticky or disintegrating when they cook, do not worry. Just continue cooking with an occasional stir, and you will end up with fabulous muthias. These muthias also have a tongue-tickling flavour thanks to peppy but readily-available spice powders, and are sure to be enjoyed by everybody.

It came out very well..indeed very tasty...but bajra stuck to the pan ( I was not using non stick pan) and hence, that crunchiness could not be achieved :D but overall a good option
