5. Then add the green chili paste, ginger and garlic paste. Also add the shredded bottle gourd (all liquid squeezed out well).
6. Add about 5 to 6 tablespoons of oil into the mixture and combine well using your hands, till the consistency is like that of a kneaded dough. Roll dough into small balls.
7. Heat oil in a pan, and half fry the muthiyas in small batches till slightly brownish in color. Drain into another frying pan.
8. Place the pan with the half fried muthiyas in a stove heated at very low temperature, drizzled with some oil.
9. If possible arrange them in a single layer. Cover and let it cook slowly in the steam produced inside the covered pan. Stir occasionally till done.

10. Serve warm as it is, or use in cooking other Indian dishes.

No water is required while combining the mixture, as the bottle gourd releases moisture.
