Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. chickpea Flour/ Besan 2 cups
  2. cilantro Leaves 2 cups loosely packed
  3. peanuts crushed 1/4 cup
  4. turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
  5. Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
  6. Ginger chilli paste 1 tbsp
  7. asafoetida a pinch
  8. water 1 1/2 Cup
  9. salt 1 tsp
  10. oil 2 tbsp
  11. Sesame seeds 1 tbsp
  12. Green chilli 1-2
  13. Curry leaves 1-2


  1. Chop the cilantro into small bits. I like to add some soft stems too, they give a great flavour.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all the steaming ingredients except water. Mix well, then add 1 cup water. Make a batter that is fairly thick. Add as much of the half cup water as required.
  3. Add a tsp of oil and spread it in a microwave safe flat bowl. Add the prepared mixture and microwave for 2 minutes with the lid on.
  4. Cook for more time if the surface does not become firm in 2 minutes. The sides will shrink too and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  5. Once done, remove on a plate or tray. Let it cool. Then cut the vadi into cubes or diamonds. They taste amazing as is.
  6. Else, heat oil in a pan, add green chilli, curry leaves and sesame seeds. Shallow fry the kothimir vadi.
  7. Serve immediately with green cilantro chutney and tomato ketchup.
