Muthia is a famous Gujarati snack, which apparently derives its name from the word ‘muthi’, meaning ‘fist’. Perhaps since the dough is shaped into cylindrical rolls using a gripping action of the palm and wrist, this snack is called Muthia.

Usually, muthias are made with a combination of besan and other flours. In this variant, we have made it using coarse whole wheat flour and it tastes simply awesome!

The crispness, aroma and spicy taste of the Crispy Whole Wheat Muthia are really appetizing. You can store it in a jar for 10-15 days and relish any time you wish with a cup of tea , or take it along while travelling .

Make sure the dough is very stiff. Instead of kasuri methi, you can also use fresh chopped methi or grated doodhi. It is important to fry the Muthias on a slow flame to make sure they are completely cooked and crisp.

Do not drain this on a tissue paper as it tends to stick – drain it well on a colander or plate instead. Cool, store in a jar and enjoy!

You can also try other jar snacks like Phoolwadi or Chakli .

I always look for snack recipes to be made and stored over the weekends so on weekdays I just have to fill in a dabba and carry it to office to eat for snacks. This was an easy recipe and tasted soo good...
