Doodhi Muthia is a healthy Gujarati snack prepared using whole wheat flour, gram flour, doodhi(lauki/bottle gourd) along with other ingredients.

 

I tried Gujarati Doodhi Muthia first time only after I got married. Once I visited a relative’s place and they served us muthia, I loved it so much that I learned the recipe from her and tried my hand at it. Since then I have tried muthia at many other places but nothing like her recipe. I thank my stars to have such amazing cooks around me to learn something new each day.

 

I have always loved and appreciated Indian cuisine. There is so much to learn and explore in every region and state. Every region has its own specialities which unfortunately are getting lost. Whenever I visit a new place I explore, try and learn local dishes.

Muthia is an easy snack recipe which can be prepared well in advance and enjoyed the whole day. It also makes for a good tea time snack or even to satiate hunger pangs which we get at any time of the day. You can also pack this in your kids’ tiffin for a quick snack break. I often pack muthias for long train journeys or picnics. It makes for a good bite-size munching option.
