Cooking Recipe

Servings: Approx. 40 bite-size muthiyas
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Prep Time: 10 minutes

1 cup Besan/ Chickpea flour
1/4 cup Suji/Semolina
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Sesame Seeds
1 tsp or to taste Salt
1 tbsp Oil – 1 tbsp
1/2 cup Fenugreek Leaves (Methi), chopped
12 sprigs Cilantro, chopped
To taste Green Chilli Paste
1 tsp emon Juice
1 tbsp or as needed Water
Oil – for deep frying

1. In a wide bowl, combine Chick-pea Flour, Semolina, Baking Soda, Sesame Seed, Sugar and Salt. Mix and incorporate all the ingredients. Add in the Oil and mix well into the dry ingredients. Add in Fenugreek Leaves, Cilantro, Chili Paste and Lemon Juice and mix again. Add in Water, 1 tsp at a time till all the ingredients come together to form a dough.

2. Heat Oil for deep-frying on medium heat. Smear the palms of hands with a little Oil so the dough does not stick. Take a teaspoon amount of dough and form oval shaped balls. Once Oil is hot, smear finger-tips with Oil as well and pick the Muthiyas and drop gently into the Oil.

3. Roll them around in the Oil to ensure even color and cooking. Once the Muthiyas are a golden brown, pull them to the side of the pan and allow the excess Oil to roll off. Trasfer the Muthiyas on to a paper-lined plate. Store to have with Tea or set aside to make Undhiyu.
