• Oil your hands and divide the dough in 3 parts.

• Roll out each part into a cylindrical shape about 8 inches long.

• Steam the muthias for 25 to 30 minutes or until they are done. Insert a toothpick in the centre of the muthias and if it comes out clean, they are done.

• Cool them and slice into ¾ inches long pieces and keep them aside.

• Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds. When they start crackling, add the sesame seeds and asafetida.

• Add the sliced muthias to the oil and fry for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove them when they turn light brown in color.
