Pudachi Vadi

My MIL is here at my place for some days now. So for the sake of Khaugiri I requested her to make typical specialty of hers. She is a specialist of "Pudachi Vadi" in our family. This is a typical Nagpuri recipe. A coriander filled Indian spring roll. In Nagpur, coriander is known as 'sambar' and this is also called as Sambar vadi.


For the Covering
Gram flour (Besan) - 1 cup
Wheat flour (Aata) - 1 cup
Chili powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Hot oil (Mohan) - 3 tablespoon
Salt to taste

For the Stuffing
Coriander - 3 cups
Grated Coconut - 1 cup
Roasted poppy seeds (khuskhus) - 2 tablespoon
Garlic cloves - 6-7
Green chilly - 3-4
Red Chili powder - 1 teaspoon
Powdered sugar - 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice - 2 teaspoon
Salt to taste.

For Paste
Kala Masala - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Tamarind pulp - 2 teaspoon


For the Covering
Mix all the ingredients and with some water knead a stiff dough.

For the stuffing
First neatly wash and finely chop the coriander. Take 1 teaspoon oil and fry garlic and chopped green chilies. Then Fry coconut , khuskhus, Coriander one by one for 1-2 minutes. Let it cool. Mix all the ingredients of stuffing.

Mix all the ingredients for the paste .

Take a small ball of dough and roll it like a roti. It should not be very thick or very thin. Now apply 1 teaspoon of paste on roti. Do not spread till edges. Now place 2-3 tablespoon of stuffing in the center. Then overlap both the sides like roll. By pressing with finger tips seal both the ends with little paste.

Like this make remaining rolls. Deep fry rolls on medium flame. Cut it in 2-3 pieces and serve it with green chutney or imly ki chutney.
