The One with Muthia

Hola Amigos,

    I saw this recipe in a TV show once and thought of trying it. It came out very well in my first attempt itself and ever since we are having this tea time snack regularly.

Origin This typical Gujarati dish has its name derived from the way it is made, from the 'gripping' action of the hand .
Nutrition : Muthia is a very nutritious snack, which is rich in dietary fiber and helps a lot in digestion. 

This is what you need :

Wheat flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tbsp
Peanuts - 2 tbsp(coarsely ground)
Poppy seeds - 2 tsp
Cabbage - 1/2 cup(grated)
Curd - 1-2 tbsp
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Green Chillies - 2
Water - 1/4 cup
Salt - to taste

To temper : ("Temper List")
Musturd Seeds - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 2 strings
Asafoetida - a pinch
Grated coconut - 1 tbsp(optional )

This is how you do :
1. Grind the ginger and green chillies into a fine paste .
2. Add salt and oil to the wheat flour and mix them well until it is blended completely. Then add the ground ginger green chillies paste, peanuts and poppy seeds to the floor and also add the grated cabbage.
3. Add curd to the flour and mix them well. Add water as required, and the dough formed should be little harder  than the usual Chapathi dough.
4. Make small dumplings out of the dough and steam it in a idly cooker or steamer for 10 Mins . Can allow for 1 or 2 Mins more if the dumplings are not cooked yet.
5. Allow them to cool for some time and cut into bite size pieces.
6. In a kadai, add the oil and after it is hot add all the ingredients in the "to temper" list except grated coconut .Now add the bit size dumplings to them and fry for some time, until they are golden brown and turn off the flame. 
7. Finally add grated coconut to garnish and serve Muthia hot !!!
