Kothimbir Vadi Recipe

Kothimbir vadi is a crispy fritter made from coriander leaves and chickpea flour. It’s a favorite Maharashtrian snack. It’s a savory and crunchy evening snack. Just like Khekda Bhaji, I love to eat Kothimbir vadi with hot tea during monsoon season:)

It is a excellent side dish with dal and rice. It is very easy to make and turns out pretty tasty.
