Coriander (Kothimbir / Dhaniya) Vadi

Coriander is generally used for garnishing. But there are many other recipes of coriander where it is used as a main ingredient. Everybody loves using coriander in cooking and I am sure this recipe will be liked by all.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp Gram flour (besan)
2 tsp Rice flour
1 bunch of Coriander
1 tsp Red Chili powder
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp Soda
Salt to taste
2 tsp Oil

For seasoning:
1 tbsp White sesame seeds (til)
Shredded coconut
Oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida (hing), curry leaves





Method:


1. Take out the coriander leaves, wash and chop.

2. In a bowl take the chopped coriander leaves. Add both the floors, chili powder, turmeric powder, soda, oil, sugar and salt. Add little (if required) water and make a thick batter. The amount of flour depends on the quantity of coriander.

3. Grease a deep platter and spread the strips of this batter. Steam for about 15 minutes in a steamer. Remove and cool.

4. Cut into small pieces.

5. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, asafoetida, cumins seeds, curry leaves, sesame seeds, coconut and then add these pieces. Mix well.


Tips:

Serve this as a side dish.
