Ragda Pattice Recipe

This Bombay style Ragda Pattice recipe might look similar to Chole Tikki which is a very popular chaat item in North India. Very similar to other chaat recipes, Ragda Pattice can also be served as a meal rather than a snack. 

Ragda Pattice is made of two major components: Ragda and Pattice/Patties.

Ingredients for Ragda:

White Peas 2 cups (soak for 4 to 5 hours )

Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves 2 tablespoon (tbsp)

Ragda Preparation Steps:

1) Place your pressure cooker on a medium flame and add oil to it. Then add chopped tomatoes and sauté.

2) Add soaked white peas followed by baking soda, turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander powder, jeera powder and salt. Stir the ingredients.

3) Add enough water till the peas are covered. Close the lid of pressure cooker on high flame and allow 5 or 6 whistles. Switch off the flame after that.

4) After the pressure cooker cools down completely, open the lid to add garam masala and coriander leaves. Stir and sauté for 5 minutes on medium flame.
