Microwave No Oil Kothimbir Vadi

Zero Oil Maharashtrian Kothimbir Vadi is a guilt free savory snack made with besan, coriander leaves and spices. These can be cooked under 5 minutes and make a filling snack.

For the Day 4, week 4 of mandatory recipes of BM#104 Sweets & Snacks, it’s Kothimbir Vadi from Maharashtra. While I do have quite a few Maharashtrian dishes on both the blogs, it was surprising that I am yet to post this Kothimbir Vadi.

Since I have to pick two different recipes, I decided I will also follow different cooking method for this recipe. While its a sinful tasting deep fried Kothimbir Vadi on Spice your life!, its healthy zero oil version on this space. I adapted it from Tarla Dalal. This comes with curds included in it as microwave cooking requires more moisture.

We all enjoyed out meal and even though there were some deep fried dishes on the table, this no oil vadi surely stood out!

  1. Of course the deep fried vadis taste fantastic , but I have always preferred a low calorie version , healthier one ! This MW version is innovative , just what I would love to try and eat without guilt . Thanks for it !

  2. The mw version sounds like a short cut version and works best when you are short of time. Interesting that it is a no oil as well. I am surprised that you have prepared batter instead of dough for both of the versions.
