Ragda Pattice / Ragda Patties / How to make Ragda for Ragda Pattice – Chat Items / Side dish for Roti

Ok here I am with the famous street food recipe..I have had it many times  and I have made it twice at home..This is one of my favorite dish to enjoy, because it is healthy and makes you full for a long time..Yes it is a complete meal all by itself..You can either have it for lunch or dinner, anyway it is perfect..

This ragda is perfect to have with Roti or Phulkas as well..But you could go one step further and transform this wonderful dish to Ragda Pattice..For making ragda pattice you will need some chutneys which you usually have with chats..I have all the recipes of the chutney in my blog..I have Green Chutney  , Tamarind Chutney and Dry Garlic Chutney..And you will need Aloo Tikki for serving along with this..You can check the recipe here..

Traditionally they use dried yellow peas which is called as vatana for this recipe..But I used dried green peas, since I couldn’t get my hands on that..Still it turned out great..You can use any of these to make this..So go ahead and try this soon, because it was delicious..

This is my DAY 6 recipe for BM which falls in the theme Seven days of Delicious Dals…. So hope you like it and I will be back tomorrow with a new recipe..
