Bajri Na Raswala Muthiya By Chef Jigss

Bajri Na Raswala Muthiya a Gujarati recipe which is my family favorite. Muthiya are made from bajri (millet flour) and simmer in spicy gravy of onion & potato. One may call it kofta’s but I call them Muthiya’s because of the way they are made using the “fist” (mutthi). It is a wholesome dish as it can be eaten all by itself as well as along with chappatis &/or rice plate.

This dish is specially enjoyed  during winters, here one can also add green-garlic while cooking gravy and make it more spiced
