Kothimbir Vadi is a Maharashtrian dish prepared with besan and coriander leaves.

Kothimbir means coriander or cilantro and vadi means fritters. This dish is a very famous snack in Maharashtra and there are different versions of it too. It is one of my favourite dishes. I still vividly remember the first time I ate this dish. It was prepared by one of my distant aunts. It was really mind blowing. Kothimbir Vadi can be deep fried or pan fried. A few years ago the “HEALTH BUG” bit me. So, I prefer non – fried dishes most of the times. It helps me to avoid taking guilt trips. Preparing it this way helps me to devour my favourite kothimbir vadis to my heart’s content.

Let us see how to prepare these guilt free kothimbir vadis !!!

Crush Roasted Peanuts (shengdana) coarsely, prepare garlic (lehsun), ginger (adrak) and green chilli (hari mirch) pastes with a mortar and pestle.

It will take almost 1 hour to set properly. Once set, cut it in desired shapes.

Apne iccha anusar tukdon mein katiye

Apply cooking oil (tel) to a tawa and heat it.

Tawe ko tel laga kar garam kijiye

Place the kothimbir vadis on the tawa to fry it and put little cooking oil (tel) on the sides of the kothimbir vadis.

Vadion ko tawa par daliye aur unki bgal mein thoda sa tel daliye

Once the bottom side of the kothimbir vadis are crisp, you flip them over.

jab niche ka hissa kurkura ho jaye toh vadion ko palat dijiye.

When the vadis are crisp on both sides, place them on their sides so that they are crisp from all sides.

Vadion ko patle hisse par rakhiye.

Once they are ready, serve them with green chutney or garlic chutney. I prefer to eat these without any chutney.
