Kothimbir vadi recipe

Finally things have come back to routine and am back to blogging. Life had become a bit busy for the past ten days and had to take a break from blogging.

I am quite eager to post so many recipes which have accumalated in the draft and this is one of them. I had heard about this snack but never tasted or tried making this until I saw the tempting pictures and recipe in poornima’s blog. I made this tasty snack for a weekend brunch and we had fun feasting on this along with yummy mint chutney.

  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil and mix well adding water to make a thick batter without any lumps. Grease a pan with oil. Add batter to it and steam for 20 minutes.
  2. (I used idli mould for steaming, you can even try baking it at 180c for 30 minutes or till a skewer comes out clean). Remove from mould and allow them to cool. Heat some oil in a pan.Now, shallow fry the vadis till they turn golden brown and crisp.
  3. Serve hot with any spicy chutney or sauce.
