Kothimbir Vadi (Coriander Fritters)

deep fried Kothimbir Vadi

Kothimbir Vadi (Coriander Fritters) is a typical Maharashtrian cuisine. It is a crispy fritters snack which is made with coriander leaves, gram flour spiced up with red chili and salt.

In Maharashtra, Kothimbir Vadi serves as a side dish in a regular meal. Traditionally, Maharashtrian cuisine always simpler with few ingredients and can easily make. Being Maharashtrian, I like this dish very much. I like to eat with a cup of tea within a snack.  There are so many ways to make this dish but I always like to do in simpler ways. So that anyone can make it.
