  • 1 cup gram dal
  • 10-12 garlic pods
  • 4 Green Chillies
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1 tsp carrom seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Oddy Ecobake



  • Soak gram dal for 3 hours and then remove water and make into a fine paste. Remove it in a bowl and now in the same mixer add garlic, chillies, ginger and jeera and make a fine paste.
  • In a big dish add finely ground gram paste and spices. Add coriander leaves chopped, rice flour, carrom seeds crushed, sesame seeds, salt, turmeric and lemon juice. Mix well into a dough. In a deep vessel and water and put the lemon skin in it. Let the water boil nicely.
  • Use Oddy Ecobake for lining the steaming vessel. Oddy Ecobake will prevent our wadis from sticking in the vessel. Also, Oddy Ecobake is grease-proof so we can skip adding oil in the sheet. Now add the wadi mixture and pat it with hands as shown in video. You can also reuse Oddy Ecobake multiple times.
  • Now sprinkle sesame seeds on the top layer of the wadi. Place the steaming plate in the steamer and cover the vessel with lid. Let it cook for 15 mins. Check after 15 mins.
  • Let it cool completely then demold the wadis and cut it equally in square shapes. Now either you can fry the wadis or eat it as it is. If you are health conscious avoid frying or just toss it in very less oil.
  • In a kadai add oil, once heated add the wadis and fry till golden brown on both sides. Our Coriander wadi is ready to be eaten with chutney and sauces.
