♨STEP BY STEP METHOD OF MAKING METHI MUTHIYA
♨STEP1: BLANCH METHI LEAVES AND CORIANDER LEAVES
♦ I love to follow the blanching process on green leafy vegetables. This process, not only help us to clean mud and impurities from the green leafy vegetables, but also results in retaining their natural green color and crunch. (This process will take 2 minutes)
♨ STEP 2: PREPARE MUTHIA DOUGH
(Use glass container as works best when kneading gram flour dough)
♦ Get hold of the kneading bowl. Mix all the dry ingredients i.e. (besan, wheat flour, cilantro leaves, ajwain, sesame seeds, cooking soda and salt to taste)
♦Add Methi leaves and ginger paste, rub Methi leaves in flour mix, add 1tsp cooking oil, lemon juice and very little water. Mix it up to form a moist mixture.
♦ Grease your hand with little oil and take 1tsp mixture in your palm and shape them in rounds or small cylinders shapes.
♨ STEP 3 : DEEP FRYING OF METHI MUTHIAS
♦Deep fry them in medium-hot oil until they are crisp and well cooked.
😊 As I have prepared this muthia for my Undhiyu, so I have no option but to keep aside, you know it's a very difficult job to avoid the temptation, it's so delicious. See you soon in my Undhiyu recipe, till then goodbye, good day, Happy Cooking!
✔ NOTES:- What is Blanching
♦ Blanching is a method of cooking. In this cooking method vegetables are plunged into a large pot of boiling water for just a minute or two and then immediately transferred into a colander and then under running water tap. The intent of following this method is to clean the vegetables and at the same time retain their natural color.
