Ragda Pattice

Ragda Pattice is another street food that is an all-time favourite in our home.
It provides a nice change when we get bored eating the usual ghar ka khana like roti, subzi, dal-rice and miss the mumbai streetfood!

Ragda is the gravy that is made of whole yellow Peas.
And this gravy is poured over the Pattice that is made of potatoes.
And it is generally topped with a spicy Chutney.

For making the Ragda-

You need to soak the whole yellow peas that is 'white vatana' overnight.
In the morning rinse them in 2-3 changes of water and boil them in the cooker till they are soft but not mushy.
For 1 cup of white vatana I chopped-
2 onions, finely and pureed 2 tomatoes.
I also used-
2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp jeera(cumin seeds)
1/4 tsp turmeric pwdr
1 tsp red chilly pwdr
salt to taste
1 tsp dhania pwdr
1/2 tsp jeera pwdr
1 tsp garam masala pwdr

How to Proceed-
Heat oil in a pan and add jeera.
Then put finely chopped onions.
After the onions turn brown, add the pureed tomatoes.
Then add salt, turmeric, red chilly pwdr, dhania-jeera pwdr and roast well.
Then put in the boiled white vatana.
Roast for sometime and add the garam masala pwdr.
Again stir well and roast some more.
Add water to reach the desired consistensy.
Bring to a boil. And garnish with cilantro.

For making the Pattice-
I boiled 6 big potatoes and mashed them well.
Then I added 2 bread slices to this.
And I also added salt and cilantro.
And mixed them well. Then I made small balls of this potato mixture using hands and flattened them a little and shallow fried them in a non-stick pan using some oil.

For the Green Chutney-
Blend together-
1 bunch Cilantro
2 green chillies
juice of 1 lime
little ginger and garlic
1/2 an onion.

To assemble-
Take a plate and place a few pattice first . Then pour the ragda over it and top it with the green chutney and chopped raw onions and enjoy!
