Doodhi na Muthiya ~ A to Z Indian Breakfast Dishes

Doodhi Na Muthiya

Doodhi na Muthiya is a traditional Gujarati breakfast dish made with a combination of flours, bottle gourd and spices for a perfect breakfast or snack for any time that can be served as dinner as well.

I have previously made Lauki Nu Muthia with a different combination of flours and vegetables. So while searching for alphabet D in the A to Z Indian Breakfast Dishes, I came across Doda from Sindhi, Dal Ka Phara, Dhuska from Jharkhand, Doddak from Konkani, Dhoklas from Gujarat.

From the list of dishes shortlisted, I have prepared most of these dishes I have already covered and felt this Dudhi na Muthiya will be an apt choice.

Traditionally these steamed muthiyas are pan fried before steaming. That makes it very crispy and delicious. I still remember the last time I made this for breakfast and loved enjoying it.

Doodhi is Bottle Gourd is also called Lauki, Sorakaya in Telugu, Sorakay in Tamil. Muthiyas refers to the method of taking a fistful of the dough and cooking in that shape.

This time I made this for dinner and later had the leftover for my breakfast as well. While green chutney makes a wonderful side dish for this, we enjoyed it with Tomato Ketchup.
