Muthias are an all-time favourite snack for Gujaratis, but for some people they may be very new.
These are steamed dumplings that can be made with 2 or 3 kinds of flour combinations and can be flavoured with different vegetables like methi, mooli (radish), bottle gourd (doodhi / lauki) etc.
This version uses cabbage and jowar flour to provide you with plenty of fibre and flavour. You can try eating these to lower down your caloric intake but do remember to limit the oil used for the tempering.
These muthias make a great snack, accompanied by a fruit or a fruit juice.
You can also try other snacks like Amiri Khaman or Khandvi .
