Doodhi na Muthiya are very popular in Gujrat and are normally made with coarse as well as regular wheat flour . Bottle gourd is added to make it healthy as well as soft . Curd too helps in giving them softness. Since I did not want to use wheat flour I made these with Jowar flour .

Actually I wanted to make Muthiya with Jowar and bottle gourd , but while steaming these , the muthiya spread and got distorted . I let them cool down . The taste was perfect but since the shape was weird I decided to mash these and form them into tikkis .The Muthiyas changed to Tikki , but trust me these tasted even better . The basic flavour remained same but since these were shallow fried a lovely crunch was added.

These Tikkis are my Day 2 post under Whole Grains.

  1. My kids are very reluctant to eat bottle gourd. This is a wonderful easy to make them eat it without knowing about it. Certainly going to try it, but with wheat flour.

  2. Great way to salvage a disaster. I love muthias.. That is on eof the ways I am able to eat bottlegaurd. I like use cabaage, methi, and palak too.
