Ragda Patties

Ragda Patties is all time favourite street food. Ragda is made from white peas and patties are fried balls of mashed potatoes. What I have made is a healthy version of potato patties because it is full of vegetables and not fried. These patties can be served individually with sweet and spicy chutney as a starter; but it tastes better with peas ragda. This can be served as main course for dinner because it is very filling.

For Patties:
3 to 4 boiled and mashed potatoes (approx. 2 cups)
2 tbsp finely chopped onion
2 tbsp finely chopped capsicum
2 tbsp finely chopped cabbage
2 tbsp grated carrot
5 to 6 finely chopped green chillies
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tsp grated ginger
Salt to taste
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 lemon juice
Dry bread crumbs for binding/Corn Flour

For Ragda:
1 cup dry green or white peas - soaked
1 table spoon oil
1 tea spoon cumin seeds
1 onion finely chopped
1 tea spoon garlic paste
1 tea spoon ginger paste
4 to 5 green chillies finely chopped
Salt to taste
1 tea spoon turmeric powder
1 table spoon red chilli powder
1/2 table spoon cumin seeds powder
1/2 table spoon dry coriander powder
1 table spoon tomato sauce
1 table spoon jaggery
1 tea spoon lemon juice
1 small tomato finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves

Serve With:
Sweet Tamarind Chutney-1 tbsp
Spicy Green Chilli –Mint Chutney-2tbsp
Curd-1 tbsp
Sev- 3 tbsp
finely chopped onion
finely chopped coriander
(serving ingredients quantity can be changed as per the taste)

For Patties:
Mix all the ingredients and add spices to it.
Make medium size balls from it and give them flat patties shape.
Grill them on tava/Pan by adding little oil to both sides. 

For Ragda:
Soak peas for 5 to 6 hours in water. Drain water and add fresh water and salt in pressure cooker .Cook them till 3 whistles.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, when it crackles add green chillies, ginger and garlic paste. Cook till raw smell fades away. Add onions and cook again for a minute
Now add boiled peas, all dry spices, tomatoes, tomato sauce, lemon juice and jaggery. Cook till it boils.
Add coriander leaves.

Place 2 patties in a serving plate and cover it with piping hot ragda. 
Garnish with both the chutneys, sev, onion and coriander.
Hot and healthy Ragda patties are ready to serve.

Tip: Use same ragda to fill in Panipuri.
