Muthia is a famous dish in most parts of Chhattisgarh. It is a well-known snack that is savored in northern India. When one visits Chhattisgarh, this is a must try and few others pack it home, in favor of its extended shelf life. It is a low-calorie snack which absorbs less oil and is basically steamed. It is a healthy alternative to snacks in most parts of Gujarat. Let's get started
Dough for the Muthia:
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Sooji - 3/4 cup
Gram flour - 3/4 cup
Green chili chopped - 2
Ginger 2-inch long piece
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp.
Salt as required
Sugar - 2 tsp.
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped- 2 tsp
Ingredients for the tampering:
Oil - 2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Sesame - 1 tsp
Curry leaves- handful
Heeng 2 pinches.
Salt as required
Lemon juice- 1
Coriander leaves chopped - 1 tsp
Make a paste of green chili and ginger and procure in a separate bowl.
Sieve the wheat flour, sooji, and gram flour in a bowl and all the other ingredients mentioned above to knead the flour into it. Make a smooth dough without forming lumps and until soft. Keep aside covered.
Grease palms with oil and take a small portion of the dough. Make long round balls as possible, this forms Muthias' and steam them in a steamer(idli stand).
Fill the idli stand with water and steam the Muthia for about 25-30 minutes.
After 30 minutes of steaming, prick the Muthias to check if they are properly steamed and if the fork comes out clean, Muthia is ready.Turn off the flame.
After they cool down and cut into thick 1.2 inch pieces. Now it is the time to tamper these pieces. Tampering adds more flavor to the Muthias.
Heat oil in a pan and tamper the cumin seeds, heeng, mustard seeds, sesame and curry leaves into it. Once the cumin seeds turn brown in color add salt, lemon juice, pieces of Muthia and coriander leaves to it. Mix them well and cook it for another 5-6 minutes.
Muthia is ready now. Serve hot with some pudina chutney.
