    Hi I made this methi muthia today but it didnt turn out quite right it tastes like ata so my husband suggested to put some spicy sauce and soya sauce and mix it but even then the chewy ata taste is still there how did i go wrong as i didnt have cup measurement i checked on google it says 1 cup=16 tbsp?

      Have u tasted muthias before….. Its little chewy madam as we use both atta nd besan in same measurements(no problem in ur measurements) and it dosen’t fluff much….. u can increase spice level according to ur family desire and I fried this well in seasoning as i said….its a gujju snack and traditional recipe suggests this but their khakhra,Dhokla,Theplas are all delicious…..thank you …if you have any doubt pls free to ask madam ..
