Kothambir Wadi is a famous Maharashtrian delicacy made with besan/gram flour, lots of coriander leaves and spices. I used bajra flour, methi and palak leaves along with the above ingredients and it became a complete meal by itself! Enjoy this healthy, spicy, aromatic and crispy snack along with a cup of masala chai!
- 1 Cup Bajra/Pearl Millet/Kambu Flour
- 1 Cup Besan/Gram Flour
- 1.5 Cups chopped mixed greens (Methi, palak and coriander leaves )
- 2 Tbsp Chopped Green Chillies
- 2 Tbsp Curd
- 1 Tsp Oil
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Ginger garlic Paste
- 1 Tsp Chilli Powder
- 1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
- 1/2 Tsp Ajwain/Carom/Omam Seeds
- 1/8 Tsp Asafoetida Powder
- 2 Tbsp Oil
- 1/2 Tsp Mustard Seeds
- 1 Tsp Jeera/Cumin Seeds
- Mix all the ingredients well and keep aside for 10 minutes. The greens will leave water and it will be absorbed by the flour mixture.
- Now, if required add water little by little ( a tbsp at a time), and make a soft dough.
- Grease a plate and spread the dough evenly. Steam for 12 to 15 minutes.
- Switch off and let it cool completely. Cut into desired shapes.
- Heat a pan and temper mustard seeds and cumin seeds in oil.
- Transfer the cut wadis to the pan and saute on low heat till they become crisp. Flip them in between carefully so that they do not break.
- Serve warm will tomato ketchup/Chutney/raitha.
