Kothimbir Vadi Recipe
About Kothimbir Vadi Recipe:
Traditional kothimbir vadi is deep fried. But to make it a little healthy, I have shallow fried them. Kothimbir vadi is a delicious savory crisp snack from the Maharashtrian cuisine made with gram flour (besan), coriander leaves, peanut, sesame seeds and spices. These savory, herby and flavorful bites can be pan-fried or deep-fried. They are a popular tea-time fritter snack loaded with coriander leaves (cilantro)
