garam masala-2tsp

salt as per taste.
mustard seeds-1tsp
dessicated/grated coconut-2tbsp

Mix the spinach and coriander leaves,gram flour,powdered spices,sesame seeds,walnuts and salt.Make it into a loose dough.Steam this in a steamer for 15 mins.

Take it out and let it cool down.Cut it into cubes or desired shapes.
Heat oil in a pan.Add 2 tbsp oil.Fry the vadis on all sides(30sec each sides approx).Remove it.Now add the mustard seeds in the same oil.When it splutters,add cumin seeds and coconut.When the coconut is brown.Add the vadis and let it coat in the mix.
