Bhaat na rasawala muthia recipe (rasiya muthia)

Bhaat na rasawala muthia or Rasiya muthia recipe – a Gujarati recipe which is my family favorite. Muthia are made from leftover cooked rice and simmer in yogurt-spices gravy. I do make it whenever I have leftover rice in the fridge.

A month ago, my in-laws were here. My mother-in-law taught me how to make this rasiya muthia. While they were here, she made it every week because we all love this.

Here amount of rice is high which makes muthia soft. But she said that if you have less leftover rice, then add more flour and make dough with water, but add a big pinch of baking soda. This soda will make softer muthia.

Rice muthia are simmer in thin yogurt gravy. As it is boiling, muthia will get cooked and gravy will become thick.

The texture of muthia is soft like pillow. They will melt in your mouth. While gravy is slightly sour and medium spicy.

** To make this dish jain, please skip the ginger.

13) Let it boil. Stir in between. Check if it becomes dry then add some more water and let it boil again. If muthia breaks into the gravy meaning it does not have enough binding. In that case add little more besan and shape again.

14) It took me about 15 minutes to cook muthia. This cooking time may vary as per size of the muthia. I have added extra 1 cup of water in between. Check the muthia by breaking and tasting it. If not cooked then you will feel the raw besan. Once cooked it will be soft like pillow.
