Kothmir nu shaak | kothmir ki sabji | new sabzi idea

Kothmir nu shaak is a quick and innovative curry recipe made with fresh coriander leaves, muthiya (dumplings), and regular spices. The muthiya or dumplings are prepared using coriander leaves, various flours, and regular spices. They are then added to the sabzi to make it delicious and nutritious at the same time. This simple curry recipe pairs well with a variety of Indian breads such as roti, paratha, or naan. It can also be enjoyed with steamed rice or flavored rice dishes. I encourage you to give it a try!

The key to making crispy kothmir nu shaak  at home are
  • Firstly, use fresh green coriander leaves for this recipe and pat them dry to remove any excess moisture. Also, make sure to wash the coriander leaves well before chopping them, and roughly chop them.
  • Secondly, I made muthiya with three different types of flour, but you can use only besan to prepare it. Additionally, ensure that the proportion of flour used in the muthiya is less, as using too much flour can make it hard after steaming.
  • Lastly, I highly recommend adding the muthiya when you are about to serve, as this will ensure that the koftas remain fresh and crisp, rather than becoming soggy.
