Ragda Pattice | Ragda Patties

Ragda Pattice or Ragada Pattice or Ragda patties – is a popular street food of Maharashtra and Gujarat. As I mentioned yesterday, it is one way of serving aloo tikki or recipe with aloo tikki as the base. Ragda – means the white peas curry or the vatana curry and pattice is the potato cutlet. Basically its aloo cutlet topped with the yummy ragda curry.

I tasted this recipe in one of the popular chaat food restaurant here in bay area and liked it very much. Its super filling and I really liked the ragda curry. This April, our friend E served this as a starter and I asked her for the recipe and made mental note to try it right away for this marathon. The dish has two parts: ragda – the white Peas gravy, and pattice, the aloo tikki. And then for assembling you need the sweet and green chutney with sev and other condiments like onions, cilantro and pomegranate seeds.
One thing I noticed with all these chaat recipes was, even though the process sounds super lengthy they are not difficult to prepare. Also if you plan and do the preparations well ahead, these recipes can be whipped up easily.

Some of the mandatory toppings that you need for all the chaat recipes are: Mint Cilantro Chutney, Dates and Tamarind Chutney, Sev, Pomegranate arils, tons of cilantro, lemon juice and last but not the least chopped onions. I used aloo tikki for the patties and I followed the same recipe that I posted yesterday.

For the ragda, I followed my friends’ recipe. Basically you soak the peas overnight and pressure cook it along with turmeric, salt, red chilli powder and garam masala powder. That’s it. Ragda gravy is ready and serve it along with tikkis and ragda pattice is ready. 

Notes:

  • For ragda, adjust the spices  and salt as per your preference.
  • Small piece of jaggery can be added in the ragda curry and also 1 tsp of tamarind paste can be added too.
  • Instead of sweet and green chutney, you can include ketch up alone.  Kiddo prefers it that way.
  • Add more or less toppings as per your preference.
