Kothimbir Vadi / Maharashtrian Cuisine
Written by Jayashree
Published on March 16, 2016
Kothimbir Vadi  is one of the specialities of the Maharashtrian cuisine. It is fritters made of coriander leaves.  You can use them as snacks with tea or as an accompaniment with main course of food.

When the theme was decided, I was sure that I would be making this dish. It was in my mind, since a long time to try and learn. Well, after browsing the internet, I followed the recipe from vegrecipesofindia. The outcome was good and liked by all.

Gram flour is mixed with fresh chopped coriander leaves and other spices. It is then put to steam. Here, you can use the microwave if you wish. It is then allowed to cool and later deep fried.
