Lauki Nu Muthia | How to make Steamed Bottle Gourd Muthiya

Lauki Nu Muthia

Lauki Nu Muthia is a healthy Gujarati breakfast dish made with bottle gourd, flours, and spices. This can be steamed or deep fried and often served for breakfast or as a snack with different chutneys.

I have made Palak Muthias very long ago and have been wanting to make these bottle gourd version. I was so glad that I could do it. I had this reserved for my Sunday breakfast and simply loved it so much! If you can believe how delicious this must have been that I skipped our regular Poori chana for this.

Even Konda enjoyed this along with me and since it was my breakfast, she let me have more. This is surely something I will be making again!

Today is the last one in the Breakfast series across India for the final week of Feb#85.
