Today’s recipe is ‘Kothimbi Vadi’. It is a one of the famous snack dish from Maharashtrian cuisine. Kothimbir means coriander, vadi means fritters, so basically these are coriander fritters which are crispy from outside and soft from inside. You can also serve them as starters for parties at home.
For Kothimbir vadi, you will require –
Coriander leaves, gram flour/besan, crushed roasted peanuts, green chilli ginger paste, salt, oil and sesame seeds/til. The traditional way of preparing kothimbir vadi is to first mix all the ingredients and prepare a batter, then steam the batter, cut them in equal size pieces, then deep frying the vadi. But in my method to reduce the preparation and cooking time, I have cooked the batter in a pan. After that let the batter set for 10-15 mins or until cool down completely. Deep-fry the set pieces and serve them hot.
