Take a thick bottom pan and heat the olive oil. Add the mustard seeds. Once they stop spluttering, add the Hing and the chili ginger paste. Add all the rest of the ingredients. Add about 1/2 cup of water and make a thick paste. Cook the paste till it forms a soft ball and leaves the sides of the pan.

Once the cake cools down, cut into 2 inch X 2 inch squares and deep fry in medium hot oil till the vadis turn golden brown and crisp.
