Kotambir Vadi - Maharashtra Special

Kotambir Vadi is delicious protein packed snack from Maharashtrian Cuisine . It’s crisp on the outside and soft inside , a perfect anytime snack .

Having a close Maharashtrian friend , I truly feel blessed . She is an excellent cook and while we were neighbors I enjoyed this cuisine very often . The Koshambirs , the Stuffed Potatoes , Missal Pav are just a few on my mind right now . It’s sad that we both live in different areas and are not able to enjoy those delicious meals anymore . But yes the Kotambir Vadi that she made was awesome . I had learnt from her , but obviously her version was totally out of the world .

Kotambir Vadi is the Maharashtrian name for this snack . It’s made of chickpea flour and lots of Kotambir – which is Kotmeer or coriander leaves . After steaming the snack , you have to allow it to cool down a little so you can cut it into pieces . Next step is to deep fry these Squares , or you could even shallow fry them . Well I didn’t do either ! I served these right away .

I have made these vadis before too , but every time I make these I follow a different recipe . This time I have added some peanuts which really enhance the taste . We have a Maharashtrian restaurant here that we visit regularly and their vadi is absolutely awesome , wish they would add more Kotambir to it .

Anyway let’s check the recipe –
