Lauki/doodhi Muthia Recipe.

Laura Muthias are steamed bottle gourd sausages and can be great appetizers. The name muthia is derived from the way it is made that is from the ‘gripping’ action of the hand. It resembles sausage, but is a vegan dish. This dish can be eaten steamed or fried (after steaming); it is equally tasty either way.

While making doodhi muthia is that bottle gourd has high water content. This water itself is sufficient to impart softness to the muthias, and it is not necessary to add any more water while making the dough.
