The Walor Muthia nu Shaak Recipe is a recipe made from flat beans and brinjal that is cooked in tomatoes and spices and tossed with fenugreek dumplings. If you don't find Walor or a particular kind of flat beans used in Gujarat, you can use any locally available flat beans as well.  

As a child I have always eaten flat beans in its dry form that are seasoned with mustard, curry leaves and fresh coconut. It was when I got married that I discovered how succulent these beans tastes when combined with tender cooked brinjal and fenugreek leaf dumplings.

I experienced a whole new textures and flavors. We serve Walor Muthia Nu Shaak along with a hot bowl of Gujarati Kadhi and Rotli’s.

How to make Walor Muthia Nu Shaak Recipe - Flat Beans Stir Fry With Dumplings

  1. To begin making the Walor Muthia Nu Shaak, In a small bowl combine the fenugreek leaves, gram flour, wheat flour, turmeric powder, sugar, asafoetida powder, eno fruit salt,  lemon juice, oil and salt to taste to make the muthia. Add very little water to make firm dough. Divide the dough into 15 small portions. Shape them in ovals and lightly press them down.

  2. Prepare a steamer and place the muthia’s in the steamer’s colander and allow it to steam for 10 minutes on medium-high heat. After 10 minutes, you will notice the color has changed to golden yellow. Turn off heat; take the colander filled with muthia’s out of the steamer and keep aside.

  3. The next step is to make the Walor Muthia nu Shaak Recipe. Heat a teaspoon of oil in the pressure cooker medium heat; add the ajwain seeds, mustard seeds and asafoetida.

  4. When the seeds crackle, add the ginger, tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, chilli powder, sugar and salt and sauté for a few seconds.

  5. Stir in the brinjal, the cut flat beans and 1/4 cup of water. Cover the pressure cooker, place the weight on and pressure cook until you hear a couple of whistles. After a couple of whistles, turn off the heat.

  6. We will now release the pressure immediately by placing the cooker under cold running water. This process helps to release the pressure immediately and also stops the cooking process of the vegetables. By stopping the cooking process, the beans and the eggplant retain its rich color. 

  7. Open the cooker, and you will notice a semi gravy like consistency of the shaak. At this stage, add the steamed dumplings. Turn the heat back on and simmer until the dumplings absorb the juices.

  8. Turn off the heat, garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve.

  9. We serve Walor Muthia Nu Shaak along with a hot bowl of Gujarati Kadhi and Rotli’s.
