Kobi-Gajar-Jowar na Muthia

Muthias come is a lot of forms, deep fried, steamed, steamed or steamed and stir fried. They are a power house of whole grains, vegetables and are sturdy health wise.

I have found a super simple way to make a keep muthia’s base ready to use. Once it is available, it takes almost 10 minutes to assemble dinner/snack. I used Moong dal, tuver dal, cracked wheat and chana dal as the base. To this I keep adding flours like jowar, bajra, ragi etc to make the muthias.

Instructions
  1. Dry roast the dals in a pan and grind them to a powder. This mix can be stored in an airtight jar for quiet sometime.
  2. Dry Roast the kansaar/fine daliya [Fine rava can be an easy substitute]. In a bowl, add the cabbage, carrots, green chilies, salt, turmeric powder, dhaniya jeera powder, red chilly powder and mix.
  3. Now add the Jowar flour, Kansaar and a cup of the dal mix. Use the curd to bind all together. It will feel a little dry, do not worry.
  4. In a tempering pan, heat oil and add sesame seeds. Once they crackle, add it to the muthia mix and mix well. We want the mix to be wet and not pouring as we will make small logs for steaming.
  5. Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
  6. Heat the steamer, oil the plate and place spoonfuls of the mix separately on it. Steam it for 12-15 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
  7. Take the plate out and let it sit for a couple of minutes before removing from the plate. It will feel a little sticky but don't worry, let it cool down and it will harden.
  8. Serve with chutney of your choice.
Recipe Notes

Keep the lentils and kansaar mix as a ready to use. I always have a batch in the fridge.
