Cabbage and Methi Muthiya | Gujarati cuisine
Written by Jayashree
Published on January 20, 2020

Muthiya is a popular steamed snack from Gujarati cuisine. It was usually made with bottle gourd traditionally. But today, we find muthias of many kind. Here, I have used cabbage and fenugreek leaves along with onion. It turned out tasty and made a good side dish. 

Muthia / Muthiya is made in different versions. Dudhi or bottle gourd is used in it and this is the  traditional  method. The others are made using different veggies and green leaves. Some of them are palak muthiya, alu muthiya, methi muthiya,  veg muthia. 

Muthiya is steamed and then later tossed in a seasoning. Thus, it is a healthy Gujarati snack and ideal with a cup of hot tea. It may be deep fried also, but I love the steamed version. The deep fried muthias areusually used in ondhiyo and other  stir fry recipes of this cuisine.

Do note that no water is used while mixing the dough, if needed, a tablespoon of it is added.

    Muthiya is a very light and delicious snack . It’s a weekly affair at home. Loved the addition of cabbage in it. Such yummy muthiyas are best for light meal or with hot cup of tea / coffee.

    The best part of the recipe is that its not deep fried. Cabbage is definitely going to bring lots of crunch in it. Its a must try recipe now because methi is in the season.

    I’m a huge fan of muthiya be it with cabbage, lauki, spinach or any veg. Steamed its really healthy. We sometimes have it without the tempering, with lemon juice sprinkled on it.
