In the meantime add oil to a hot pan. Add mustard seeds and jeera. 
When they start spluttering, add ginger, sauté for few minutes and then add the chopped onions, salt, curry leaves and green chillies.

Cool the mixture and make small round balls. Keep aside.

Time to make the batter for outer cover.
