Kothimbir Vadi / Steamed Coriander dumplings

Yum
In my opinion, Kothimbir vadi is Maharashtrian answer to their neighbor Gujarat's Muthia. I remember Years ago when I was watching Sanjeev Kapoor's show  here in US, he was making this dish and I made it after wards, I loved it. But after that I never made it. Now I am thinking that why I didn't made this in all these years. It's healthy, steamed and delicious. So I make promise to myself that I am going to make this dish as much as possible. Always we use coriander leaves for garnishing but here its main ingredients. It's easy so lets make it.

Ingredients :

half a bunch of coriander leaves (washed and chopped)
2 tbsp. chickpea flour (besan)
1 tbsp. Rice flour
1 tsp. red chili powder
1 tsp. turmeric powder
salt as per taste
1 tsp. oil
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sugar ( optional I did not add it)

For seasoning:
2 tsp. oil
1 tsp. white sesame seeds
1 tsp. mustard seeds
Pinch of hing, few curry leaves
1 green chili chopped

Method:
In a bowl, take chopped coriander leaves. Add both the flours, chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and baking powder, oil.

Add little water ( if required only cause leaves will have enough water) and make thick long tube.

Grease a dish of steamer and put the dough tube in it.
Steam in the steamer for about 15 minutes.
Take it out and cool it completely.
You can eat it as eat it or you can season it.
Make as per your liking pieces.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add mustard seeds when crackle add hing, curry leaves, green chilies and sesame seeds.
Add the cut pieces in it and mix well.
If you wish sprinkle some lime juice in it and serve warm with hot tea or just as it is for snack.

  1. I love muthia, they are simply superb.. moist and flavorful. But, the fact that I am a coriander fan makes me a lover for this kothimbir vadi too. Had it in Mumbai for the first time, and fell in love with it instantly. Although I had a deep-fried version. This looks good and healthy! :)

  16. I am new to this recipe yet I am interested to try out. I like the steaming for a chance and with the rest of the ingredients, its a welcomed dish. Also I can't say not to the fragrance of coriander, a must ingredient for my cooking, also without it, Indian dishes are not complete.

  17. I have heard of Muthia!! Your Maharashtrian version of Kothimbir vadi looks very yum, love the color. Sesame seed addition gives the beautiful coating of white on to the green background.
    If there is no steamer, what other ways can we do the steaming?
    Also is baking powder necessary?

    1. Instead of baking powder , tru soda bycarb. for steamer, take one big pot , fill just a thin layer of water and put big bowl in it. then put the dish with flour log in it and steam it with cover. use pressure cooker without whistle too.
