Palak Sepu vadi

Sepu vadi is a renowned dish of himachal pradesh. Vadis are made with lentils and stored for days and used as and when required. It is very healthy and tasty dish suited for rice as well as chapati. Inspiration of this recipe is from a cookery show. I have used palak for curry and black urad dal (urad dal with skin) to make vadis.
