Mix all the batter ingredients together with water and make into a thick smooth paste and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and fry ginger, garlic & chili paste for few minutes and put the onions and fry for 5 minutes. Then add the steamed vegetables, turmeric & salt and mix well. Saute this for 10 minutes. Then pour the lime juice and garnish with cilantro. Remove this from fire. Let it cool for some time.
Make lemon sized balls out of this mixture and dip it in the batter. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry few balls at a time, until golden brown. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
