A traditional Gujarati snack made with leftover rice and spices cooked in spiced water is Bhaat na Rasawala Muthia. Muthia's are very famous snack derived for Gujarat, which are made with different ingredients and has a lot of variations too. People also make muthia's with doodhi, spinach, cabbage, moong dal, methi and etc. We have made our muthia's with rice and the uniqueness about these muthia’s is that they are not steamed unlike other muthia recipe, they are cooked in boiling spiced water which is then served with the gravy. As the name suggest, bhaat na rasawala muthia, bhaat which stands for “rice” and rasawala “gravy” it says a lot about the recipe.
For making Bhaat na Rasawala Muthia the procedure is segregated into two steps, first the muthia’s are rolled and then cooked. To start making bhaat na muthia, mix together leftover rice, besan, coriander leaves for freshness, ginger-green chilli paste, asafoetida, soda bi-carb, turmeric powder, sugar and oil. Hing aids in disgestion while soda helps in making soft muthia. Knead into a dough without using any water and divide, shape them and keep aside. To proceed, prepare a tempering. For that take a deep pan, add oil, mustard seeds, asafoetida, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, water and curd water mixture and boil it. As we have added curd, whisk it continuously and cook it on a low flame or else there are high chances of curd curdling.
Once the water has come to boil, add the muthia and cook for 7-8 minutes. When adding muthias to the mixture, add one muthia and check. If it disintegrates add a little besan to the muthia mixture, mix well and continue as per the Gujarati rasiya muthia recipe. Stir very gently in between as you do not want to break them. Check the muthia by breaking and tasting it, if it is undercooked then you will be able to taste the raw besan.
Bhaat na Rasawala Muthia are quite easy to make. The ingredients used in making it are quite basic and are available in every Indian household.
