Kothimbir Vadi is a famous snack from Maharashtra. It’s made with Cilantro/Corriander leaves, besan and spices. There is pan fried and deep fried versions of this Vadi. I chose to steam and pan fry the vadi. They turned out really tasty.

Kothimbir Vadi can be served as a tea time snack with any chutney. Made this Vadi as part of our sweets and snacks mega marathon, week 4, day 4. Please do check other variations of Kothimbir Vadi done by my fellow bloggers by clicking the link at end of this post.
