About Kothimbir Vadi Recipe

Kothimbir Vadi is a Maharashtrian snack. In Marathi, green coriander is called Kothimbir. This is my version of Kothimbir Vadi that I always make at home. Tastes great and is guilt free too as instead of deep frying I simply stir fry it. The crunchiness of outer crust and softness inside makes it so delicious. Its a very good option for breakfast too. You can prepare it in advance and fry just before serving.
