Kothimbir Vadi(कोथिंबीर वडी)

Kothimbir Vadi is another Maharashtrian delicacy. It works great as an appetizer or even for snacking. Kothimbir Vadi tastes especially good when they are hot. It feels so good to eat them when it's raining outside with some tea or coffee. Now, my mom used to steam Kothimbir vadi in pressure cooker but I steam them in microwave, it's fast.

4 Cups chopped Coriander (about 4 bunches)
1/2 tbsp Chili powder
1 1/2 Cup Chickpea Flour(बेसन)
1/4 Cup Rice flour(तांदुळाचे पीठ)
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp Asafoetida 
1/2 tbsp salt
1 tbsp Sesame seeds(तिळ)
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Cumin powder(जिरे पूड)
1 Cup water
1/2 tsp Oil
1/4 tsp baking soda
Oil for deep frying

Mix all the above ingredients together except Oil for frying. This mixture should not be too thick or too thin. 

Spray microwave safe baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and pour the mixture in it. 

Microwave it for 3 minutes and then again for 3-4 minutes. Remove dish from microwave and let it cool. Then  cut it into squares.

Deep fry them to golden brown color and serve them hot.

Enjoy your Kothimbir Vadi!!!

Quick Tips-:
You can steam Kothimbir Vadi a day in advance, cut into cubes and store them in a container and refrigerate it. Next day deep fry them and serve hot.
