Mix all the ingredients except chopped fenugreek in a big bowl.
Add water and the chopped fenugreek.
Mix well till you get a dough that is not too soft or too hard.
Allow the dough to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Take some extra oil in a small bowl.
I use a perforated steel plate or colander.
Smear your plate or steaming device with some oil.
Smear oil over your palms.
Shape the muthiya. Here I have made small long oval shapes using about a tablespoon of the dough.
Arrange them in the plate or colander.
Get your steaming device ready.
Put some water in your steaming device and bring it to a boil over medium heat.
I use an old pan with a stand.
I place the steel basket or colander over the stand.
Cover the pan with a lid.
Allow the muthiya to steam for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove the plate from the steaming device.
Allow the muthiya to cool down completely.
Can deep fry or stir fry them. I chose to stir fry them.
Heat 2 tbsp oil in a wide pan over medium heat.
Add the seeds and garlic. Mix well.
Immediately add the steamed muthiya.
Stir fry them for 5-7 minutes till they become light golden in colour.
Serve immediately with a wedge of lemon.
