Kordois- Savoury Version

Here is the other version of Kordois I posted yesterday. I made these for ICC this month. Srivalli chose the recipes for two versions of kordois from Sunita's blog. Yesterday I posted the sweet version and today here I am with the savoury version. When I posted the sweet version in Facebook, I received some comments from friends. They gave me the other names of the sweet made in various states of India. In Maharashtra they are called as Champakali, in Bengal they are known as Elo Jhelo and in Andhra they are known as Panasa Thonalu. Now coming back to the savoury recipe, I made some changes to Sunita's recipe. She added onions, carrot and spinach in the savoury recipe, but I added only kasuri methi to make it pliable and shaping more easy. This version was enjoyed by hubby dear and my daughter didn't even want to taste it. It was so tasty. I personally loved the savoury version so much.
