dudhi na muthiya

These are the dudhi na muthiya my mom made for breakfast when they were over a few weeks back. They are really simple, healthy and really really delicious. Every Gujarati has their own version so a lot of the ingredients are to taste and are optional. This is generally served for breakfast along with some piping hot ginger tea.

What you do is - grate a dudhi or even a zucchini or some other squash, add some salt and then squeeze out the liquid, then you add some whole wheat flour, crushed ginger, garlic, green chillies, a few tablespoons of semolina or rawa and besan, salt and a pinch of sugar, some turmeric and lemon juice. Bind all this together with the water that was squeezed out earlier from the dudhi.

Then you form them into logs and steam for about 20-25 minutes and then cut them into small pieces and do tadka or tempering of : oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafeotida, dried red chillies and sesame seeds.

This can be served either hot or warm with some yogurt for dipping.

Oh wow - what an interesting recipe. I have got to empty out my frig and have 2 zucchinis left. Will make this right away. I hope I am able to make the logs - wonder if the wheat flour will make it bind. If you see this soon, pls email me what amt of wheat etc flours are added to 2 grated zuchchinis! I am going to do something random now...!!

Your blog is delicious! I can't wait to come back and explore some more. I'd be more than happy to post my little recipe for my lavender hair rinse. I'll probably get to it some time next week. :)

Penny - Aaah - you constantly surprise me! I think asafetoida is one of things that make people think twice about cooking indian food at home, lol!

Manisha - I hadn't made them in forever either, some things just don't make a regular appearance no matter how tasty or healthy they are.

Notyet100 & Delhibelle - Thanks so much guys!!!

Srivalli - I can't believe that coming from a chef like you :)

Deepa - I hope you tried them and they worked out for you!
