Cilantro rolls/ “Kothimbir vadi”

This is a recipe for a starter dish from the region of Maharashtra. Its simple, easy to make & rich in Iron.

Ingredients- I bunch of cleaned & finely chopped cilantro, bengal gram flour, 1tsp of chilli powder, 1/4 tsp of turmeric, 1/2 tsp of cumin-coriander powder, 2 cloves of garlic & salt to taste.

Mix bengal gram flour with the chopped cilantro so that you can knead it into a dough. The dough shouldn’t be too dry so add the flour as much as the cilantro can accomodate.  Add very little water & oil  while kneading as the cilantro also tends to give out some water. Add the above spices & salt . Roll out the dough into elongated rolls . Steam them in a bamboo steamer or any other steamer. Don’t pressure cook ! Once they are well steamed cut them in to 1/2 thick pieces & shallow fry them till they are light brown on both sides. Alternatively you can eat them as they are.. Isn’t this a healthy & simple recipe? Try it out! Serve it with cilantro- mint chutney & your family will love it.
