ABOUT Moringa Multigrain Muthia RECIPE

To a Gujarati, Muthia is a most common food and to the kids it is a food they detest the most. I too am not a huge fan of Muthia maybe because I was fed it too often during my childhood leading to this partial averseness to it. Muthia are petit logs we shape in our fist meaning Mutthi. There are multiple ways we make them and multiple ways we use them. The Gujarati cuisine celebrates Muthia in number of ways.The Moringa Multigrain Muthia combines the goodness of Moringa and a variety of flours.
