this recipe is shared by my reader bhagyashree patil, currently residing and living in pune maharashtra. i had heard a lot of stories about this kothimbir vadi recipe from my husband and he is big fan of this recipe. apparently he was exposed to several maharshatra cusine recipes during his stay in pune. out of all maharshtrian bhakarwadi and maharashtrian kothimbir vadi are his favourite recipes. i personally felt this recipe very similar to patra or patrode recipe which is prepared from colocasia leaves. also even taste wise there are several similarities too.

furthermore, some important tips and variations to this traditional kothimbir vadi recipe. firstly, it is always recommended to use fresh green coriander leaves for this recipe. also make sure to clean the coriander leaves and pat dry them properly before using it in the recipe. more moisture in the kothimbir leaves would require more besan to absorb the water content. secondly, and more importantly the thumb rule for coriander leaves to besan proportion is 2:1. lastly the other variation to this recipe is to prepare it similar to dhokla and to steam it.
