Muthiya are the Gujarati version of a dumpling, a dough is made from various types of flour and vegetables, the mixture then rolled into a sausage shape and steamed.

They’re often served as a snack but we’re serving them with a simple tomato sauce to make a complete dish.

Blooming delicious

This looks fantastic - well done!


This had an excellent what I call 'effort to deliciousness ratio'!! The dumplings were great, I used spelt flour (adding baking powder as raising agent) and the texture was nice & chewy, almost meaty which made it a good hearty dish. Served here with saag aloo and cabbage & pomegranate salad which I found to be a lovely combo!

This all looks incredible, Lauren - great job! It's really interesting to hear that you used spelt flour for the dumplings, sounds like it worked a treat!
