Ragda Patties

I have been cooking all through this break time but never took interest in posting them. Rather I must say I din't make any special recipes that are worth sharing. Last sunday I made ragda patties which happens to be favorite of both me and my husband. Living in San antonio I miss all these tasty street foods. So I learned to make them at home myself to satisfy the cravings.

Here is the recipe for Ragda Patties:


1 1/2 cups white peas (soaked in water for couple of hours and pressure cooked upto 2 to 3 whistles with a pinch of baking soda)
1 small onion finely chopped
1 small tomato finely chopped
2 green chillies finely chopped
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Mixed spices(a pinch of clove, cinnamon and cardamom powders)
1/2 tsp Chaat masala powder
1 tsp coriander cumin powder
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 small lime size tamarind ball soaked in hot water
1 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
1 tbsp oil
salt as per taste

Heat the oil in a pan and add green chillies and onion to that. When onion turns translucent add the turmeric, coriander-cumin powder and ginger-garlic paste. Saute for couple of minutes and add tomato. Let the tomato cook and then add the cooked peas, salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala and mixed spices. Extract tamarind pulp and add to the gravy. Let it cook until everything comes together. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with patties.


3 medium potatoes
a pinch turmeric powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp coriander cumin powder
bread crumbs to coat the patties

Boil the potatoes until they become tender but not mushy. Take them into a bowl, add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and coriander cumin powder. Mix them all together, make into patties of required size. Coat them in plain bread crumbs and shallow fry them on both sides in a non-stick pan with a tsp of oil for each side.


Take two patties into a plate, pour the ragda over them. Top them with some beaten curds, tamarind and cilantro chutney as per your taste level. Garnish with couple of crushed pani puri, sev and fresh finely chopped onion and cilantro. We enjoyed it much... hope you will also enjoy them equally.
