Not one, but three nourishing flours! not one, but two nourishing greens. Really, nutrition and taste come as a package deal in this delectable snack. While the usual spices like ginger, green chillies and garlic feature in this recipe too, the highlight is the sesame seeds, which impart an interesting crunch to the muthias. Keep the muthias a little far away from each other in the microwave, or else they will stick to each other!

I cannot eat wheat. Can I substitute with oats or jowar flour?

Tarla Dalal    Yes, you can try with jowar flour, but the proportion of water might vary.
