Popular Maharashtrian snack made healthier. It is usually considered to be a fried snack…but I tried making them without using any oil and the vadis turned out to be just as scrumptious. Kothimbir means coriander, which is the main ingredient in this recipe. Make sure you use fresh and green coriander for best results. Serve this snack with tea or coffee and revel in the flavours of Maharashtra.
