Guilt-Free Steamed Dumplings: Cabbage Jowar Muthiya

Starting the day with a healthy and delicious breakfast will give you abundant satisfaction. Cabbage jowar muthiya is a nutritious dish that has the goodness of both vegetables and grains. Because this dish is cooked with steam, you won't use any oil.

In addition, steamed muthiyas are sautéed in cumin and curry leaves tempering, which gives the dish a nice aroma and a wonderful crispiness. The spices added to the dough, such as ginger, garlic, and asafoetida (hing), make these bite-sized dumplings flavorful and appetizing. Serve them hot with a spicy dip or sauce.

You can also pack them for lunch at the office, a picnic, or other outings. Children love to find this snack in their school lunchboxes.

Now, let me share the detailed recipe.
