Kothimbir Vadi (Savoury Coriander Cutlets)

Kothimbir Vadi, another famous mumbai snacks with coriander leaves as main ingredients...To be frank, before few months back i doesnt even know wat this dish goes for, i dont have that much idea about mumbai foods apart from Pav bhaji..i have heard about this kothimbir vadi and had virtual treats through some of our blogger dears, but never tried at home..Blogging taught me so many things and beautiful regional dishes which were quite not familiar to me before entering to this blogsphere...I crossed this delicious kothimbir vadi dish through Poornima's space, her kothimbir vadi tempted me a lot when she posted the day itself and i bookmarked her post immediately and this weekend i got an opportunity to try out this crispy savoury cakes or cutlets watever we can call them, i really enjoyed making this dish..It was really very flavourful, delicious, crispy and prefect snack even my lil ones loved this crispy snacks with ketchup...Thanks to Poornima for sharing this dish and we just loved it...I slightly changed few ingredients as per my taste else i have followed her recipe goes for...Am sending this mumbai delicacy to RCI-Mumbai guest hosted by Lakshmi , event by Lakshmi& to EC's WYF-Speciality Food..

2cups Coriander leaves (chopped)
1cup Chickpeas flour
1/4cup Rice flour
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1/2tsp Garam masala
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
2tsp Sesame seeds
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Lemon juice
1tsp Sugar
1/4tsp Baking soda
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Salt
Oil for shallowfrying

Mix the chopped coriander leaves, chickpeas flour, rice flour, chopped green chillies, ginger garlic paste, garam masala ,turmeric powder, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, asafoetida powder, lemon juice sugar ,salt and baking powder with enough water as a thick batter, grease a flat bottom vessel with oil and pour this thick batter to greased vessel, steam cook for atleast 30minutes and check with a skewer, if its come out clean (i inserted almost everywhere to check out, please do so else u will have some surprise)the batter is well cooked...Keep aside and let get cool..



Unmould and cut into pieces..heat the oil for shallow fry in a pan and fry the vadis on medium heat until they turn crispy..drain the excess of oil with a paper towel..Serve hot with ketchup or any other chutneys as u desire..
