Kothimbir Wadi

Are you craving for some ‘chatpata snacks’ but still want to eat something relatively health? Here’s one such recipe just for you. Kothimbir Wadi is a snack that needs very little preparation time and can satisfy those nasty hunger pangs.


  • Corriander leaves, washed and finely chopped – 2 cups
  • Besan – 1 1/2 cup
  • Dahi – 1 cup
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Dhania powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Jeera powder – 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida (hing) – a pinch
  • Sesame seeds (white til) – 1 tsp
  • Roasted peanuts, crushed – 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Ginger-green chilli paste – 1 tbsp
  • Sugar – 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste


Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. If the mixture is too thick, add water, little at a time till the batter is of a pouring consistency. Grease a tin and pour the batter in it. Steam in a pressure cooker with a lid on the tin for 20-25 mins. It may take longer if there is a lot of batter in the tin. To check if it is done, insert a knife in the middle of the mixture. If it comes out clean, it is done.

Once steamed, allow it to cool. Run a butter knife around the steamed mixture. Cut into squares and remove from the tin.

These can be consumed steamed or shallow-fried on a griddle pan. For the ‘not calorie conscious’, these wadis can be fried too. They are best eaten with ketchup or chutney.
