How to make Bhaat Na Muthia Dhokla Recipe (Steamed Rice Dumplings)
To make the Bhaat Na Muthia Dhokla Recipe, we will first prepare the steamer by filling it with water and grease the steamer plates.
Using a large wide bowl combine all the ingredients for the muthias and mash well using a masher or with your hands. The mixture will look like a firm ball of dough.
Divide the above mixture into 15-20 equal portions and shape them into ovals.
Place the portions of the dumplings 1 inch apart on the greased plates and steam on high heat for 15 minutes. Turn off heat and allow the Muthia to rest for 5 minutes with the steamer lid opened. Transfer the steamed bhaat na muthia portions onto a serving platter.
Next we will make the seasoning for the Bhaat na Muthia. Heat oil in a small pan on medium heat; add the mustard seeds, sesame seeds, curry leaves and allow them to crackle.
Drizzle the seasoning on top of the muthias and garnish with the grated coconut and coriander leaves and serve.
