Kothimbir Wadi (Steamed and Fried Coriander Squares)


Ingredients:
  • Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves and Young Stems : 2 Cups
  • Besan or Chickpea Flour: 1 Cup
  • Rice Flour: 1 Cup
  • Finely Chopped Green Chillies: To Taste
  • Red Chilli Powder: To Taste
  • Coarse Powder of Almonds & Cashews: 2 tbsp
  • Ginger Garlic Paste: 2 tsp
  • Garam Masala: 2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder: 1/2 tsp
  • Roasted Sesame Seeds: 1 tbsp
  • Lemon Juice: 1 tbsp
  • Salt to Taste
  • Oil for Frying

Procedure:

  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil and both flours very well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Then add both flours, mix well. Add little water at a time and mix everything to form a nice dough just like chapati dough.
  3. Make 3 balls of this dough. Roll each ball into cylindrical shape of 1 inch width.
  4. Grease steamer plate with oil or place wet cloth on rice cooker steamer. Place dough on this plate and cook them for 20 to 25 minutes. Insert toothpick in the dough, it should come clean.
  5. Let it cool for a while. Cut cylindrical dough in half inch discs. You can eat these like this or if you want you can shallow fry or deep fry them.
  6. Heat some oil in pan and shallow fry wadis till they become golden brown. Once they start becoming brown sprinkle some roasted sesame seeds.
  7. Serve these hot with any kind of chutney or sauce or you can eat just like that.
