Kothimbir Vadi/ Coriander cutlets

I have been having some problem with my feed, if u don't see my post in Ur reader list/updates please check my blog and inform me if u have any problems with my blog feed. It will help me fix the problem. Pooja of My cooking experience was very helfpul to check the feeds and get back to me immediately..thank you pooja.. She blogged about the technical issue two days ago which was an eye opener to resolve my issue.. This is gonna be another tester to make sure my blog feeds are visible in google reader.

Coming back to our recipe, Kothimbir wadi's was blogged by Nupur of One hot stove and re blogged by Poornima of Tasty treats for MBP snacks. Kothimbir is nothing but our Coriander!!! I was very much interested in it and tried it . Aw some recipe..My hubby loved it..I already made it twice...
Nupur, ur recipe is Tried, Tasted and Certified:Excellent.


2 cups packed cilantro leaves, chopped fine
1 cup chickpea flour/besan
1 tbsp. rice flour
1/4 cup mixed flours (ragi or millet flour/ atta or wheat flour/ any other you have on hand)
4 green chillies, minced fine
1 tsp. ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. poppy seeds
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. turmeric
pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp. garam masala
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. sugar (I didnt use it)
salt to taste
Oil for frying


I just followed footsteps of Nupur..

1.Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, except for the oil.
2. Add enough water to make a thick batter and stir well to remove all lumps.
3. Grease a flat vessel (I sprayed cooking spray). Pour the batter into the vessel.
4. Steam for about 30 minutes till a skewer inserted in the middle comes clean.
5.Let cool, unmold and cut into slices.
6. Heat 1/4 inch oil in a skillet and fry the slices till crispy and golden.


First time when i tried, I didnt make any changes to the recipe. Second time i made few changes to the recipe, which tasted better and made it much more healthier.
Instead of using 2 cups of besan, i used 1 cup besan and 1 cup ragi flour.



Lovely cutlets Ashwini. Love the changes you have made. Your updates are visible in Reader. I guess its updating well now :)
