3-4 grated coconut
 pinch of baking soda

Take oil in thick bottomed vessel , add mustard seeds to it. once they start spluttering add channa dal, urad dal,cashewnuts, cut green chilies and ginger paste to it. fry them on medium flame until they turn light brown in color. then add rava to it and fry until you get nice aroma.Turn off flame and allow it to cool down(may take 15-20 mins)

Add yogurt ,salt,baking soda and half of chopped coriander leaves. set it aside for 30 mins.
