Methi Kansaar Muthias

Muthias are steam and stir fried dumplings. They are made in a lot of ways. My favorite one has cracked wheat, methi leaves and yogurt. In my attempt to make breakfasts more wholesome, this dish was born. Kansaar is finer version of broken wheat/bulgar. The sourness from the yogurt compliments the methi leaves and also makes the muthias softer.
