Tameta Methi Muthia nu Shaak is a traditional dish made in Gujarat.
Literality means muthias in tomato gravy.Here I have used methi muthia to make my gravy.
When I made methi muthia I wanted to try making the gravy to go with fulkas. The blend of the spices and the tangy tomato gravy is amazingly delicious.
Basically, this delicious dish is made from steamed muthia that means it is low fat.
I have copied this muthia from here and have loved it.
Since I was out of coriander I have garnished with holy basil or Tulshi.
