  • 1/2 Cup Chickpea Flour / besan
  • 1/2 Cup Wheat Flour  
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder
  • 1 Green Chili   / Serrano pepper & Finely Chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste  
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder  
  • 1 pinch Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt   or as required
  • 1 Cup Cooking Oil for Frying


  • Wash and clean methi leave. Remove large stem. It is ok to leave the tender stem attached to the leaves. Using colander drain the water completely.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine besan, wheat flour, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, baking soda, finely chopped green chilies, ginger paste.
  • Add drained and chopped methi leaves. Sprinkle little water at a time to combine the flour with the leaves. Be caution here, as the leaves already have tons of moisture.
  • Combine everything together, to form a big ball. The dough should neither be sticky or very hard. It has to be pliable consistency.
  • Apply oil into your palms and Divide them into equal size portions.
  • Make into desired shapes, I preferred this shape because they are easier to make.
  • In medium flame, heat oil in the pan for frying. Once the oil gets heated add these muthiah balls. Flip them occasionally to get evenly fried and golden brown on all the sides.
  • Serve as evening tea time snacks along with tomato ketchup or any other sauces of your choice.
