Pressure cook this for 3 whistles
Dry roast the coconut flakes and cumin seeds and grind it in the mixer into a fine powder

Clean the spinach, cut finely and add it to the hot water and blanch it. Take it out and keep it aside. Reserve the blanched water too
Now in a large pot add the cooked peanut, Bengal gram dal, blanched spinach and cook on low flame
Now mix the Bengal gram four to the buttermilk, whisk well so that no lumps are formed and add it to the spinach mixture
Cook till the liquid reduces
Now add the coconut cumin flake mixture, salt, garam masala and red chilli powder. Cook for further few minutes till most of the liquid is reduced
Heat oil in  another pan and add mustard seeds. Once it crackles add all other things under tempering and pour it on this cooked subzi.
Mix well and serve warm
