Dudhi Muthia
Dudhi na Muthia, Doodhi Muthia or Lauki Muthia is a traditional healthy Gujarati snack. Being a Gujarati I am sharing the authentic style of cooking Muthia. This one is multigrain; you can make it with addition or removal of any flour. The taste is awesome and it is super healthy as well. I have also made Beetroot Cutlets which are delicious and healthy. Muthias are steamed and not deep fried. So let's begin with the recipe....

We all need to have something delicious yet healthy. One of the most healthy superfood is the Beetroot. Though, I do not like its raw pungent smell, so I find out multiple way to consume it. But before that let me explain you why Beetroot is considered as the superfood. Here are some of the potential health benefits of it....
  • Beetroots are the great source of Fiber, Vitamin B-9, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron and Vitamin C.
  • Improves Blood flow, lowers Blood Pressure, and increased exercise performance.
  • Packed with anti-oxidants.
  • May improve digestion and helpful in brain health.
  • May help you lose weight. 

Beetroot is so versatile that you can make juice, salad, soups, pav bhaji, pulao or chutney. But today I will be sharing my favourite recipe – Beetroot Cutlets. They are easy to make, filling and equally delicious. So let's start.
