Ragda Patis

Chat is an all time favourite with my family. Any day dinner with any chat item is acceptable. So maybe I will be writing up about all the different types of chat. Being a bit more conscious about nutrition I try to vary the tradition a bit. Though it is not always a hit or even acceptable I do it & they are unaware as to why the chat is different. So let’s today have

Ragda Pattis

First the ragda

¼ cup white peas
1 ½ cup water
A pinch of soda
3 tsp oil
¼ cup onion chopped fine
¼ tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 ½ tsp green chilli paste
½ tsp goda masala
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp jeera powder
½ tsp garam masala
¼ tsp haldi

Wash the peas in running water then soak overnight. Cook in the soaked water till soft in the morning. Mash well about 3 tblspn of the cooked peas.

In the oil add onion ginger, garlic green chilli add the mashed peas and fry till the mixture is well cooked. Pour 3 cups of water.

Add rest of the masala and boil till the mixture thickens.

1 potato boiled and mashed
1 slice bread
1 pinch turmeric
Oil for shallow frying
Dip the bread in a little water and remove. Squeeze dry. Mix the rest of the ingredients and make small balls the size of a small lemon. Flatten on your palm. Arrange on a tava pour the oil and fry both the sides till they are brown.

To serve

Put 2-3 pattis on a plate. Add the hot ragda on top till the patties are well soaked.
Sprinkle finely chopped onion, boondi and or sev, tamarind chutney, dates chutney, green chutney,coriander, red chilli powder. Eeeeeeeeenjoy!!
