This is a popular maharashtrian snack which is usually considered to be a fried snack…but here its made 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.
Coriander or cilantro herb is very low in calories and contains no cholesterol. However, its deep-green leaves possess good amounts of antioxidants, essential oils, vitamins, and dietary fiber, which may help reduce LDL or "bad cholesterol" levels in the blood.The herb is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that help regulate heart rate and blood pressure. Iron is essential for red blood cell production. The human body uses manganese as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.
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.
