Rasiya Muthiya

Rasiya Muthiya is a Gujarati dish, made from leftover cooked rice. Rasiya means - sort of liquid gravy and Muhtiya means dumplings. The dumplings are made with leftover cooked rice and some gram flour, whereas the liquid gravy is made with curd, converted to buttermilk form. This is quite an intersting dish, but has small small processes. This adds to a perfect dinner time dish, light and tasty.

Step 1 :
Lets start with preparing Muthiya {Dumplings}....
Ingredients:

Cooked Rice 1 bowl
Besan / Gram Flour 2 tbsp
Salt as per needed
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Red chili powder 1/2 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp

Method :
Take leftover cooked rice in a bowl. 


To it add gram flour, green chili - ginger paste,salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder and oil and mix well, nicely mashing by palms, so that  rice and everything gets combined well

Now take little of the mixture with your fingers, and start shaping it into oval shape dumplings. 
{Don't use water. If needed little oil touch up is fine}.

Shape the remaining made mixture into dumplings and keep ready aside. 

Step 2:
Now lets start preparing the Rasiya {Buttermilk Liquid like gravy}...
Ingredients:

Curd 3 tbsp
Water 1 1/2 tbsp
Salt as per needed
Turmeric powder a pinch

Method:
In a bowl take the curd. Add water, salt and turmeric powder and churn it with a churner.

Keep it ready aside.


Step 3:
Now lets make the final part of making the rasiya muthiya...
Ingredients:
For tempering:

Oil 11/2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves few
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
Coriander - Cumin powder{Dhana - Jeera powder} 1 tsp
Water 1/2 cup

Method:
In a pan heat oil. Once heated add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, Curry leaves and allow it to splutter. 

As it starts spluttering, add red chili powder, coriander  - cumin powder, and water and just stir once, and reduce the flame to extreme low.


Now, to it, start adding the readied Muthiya{dumplings} one by one slowly and gently.
{Be slow and gentle, else the muthiyas will break and spoil the dish}.

In slow flame, allow them to get cooked, until the gram flour is done, say around 4  - 5 minutes.

Switch off the flame.

After 5 to 7 minutes, as it comes to room temperature, add the buttermilk mix{step 2 - rasiya liquid} to it.
{Please be sure that it has become cold / come to room temperature, else if u add the buttermilk mix in hot it will curdled and the dish will go totally waste}.

Switch of immediately.

Rasiya Muthiya is now ready. It can be had as it is. 


Enjoy...
