Ragda Patties Recipe: Mumbai Ragda Patties, Ragda Pattice Recipe

Ragda Patties or Ragda Pattice is a favorite chaat recipe. My three favorite chaat recipes at any chaat counter would be of course Ragda Patties and Pani Puri and Sev Puri. I would gorge on Ragda Patties along with Bombay Mysore Masala Dosa and the tasty Bombay Veg Sandwich quite often as a kid.

Later, due to hygiene and energy reasons, I stopped eating out. Till today, I rarely eat out. So, the option is to make these recipes at home: making them in a clean, hygienic manner and with lots of love and positive energy.

After doing meditation for years, I have become sensitive to the energy in foods, especially of the person making it. I instantly come to know in what emotional and mental state the person has cooked the food. Thus I avoid eating out even in the upmarket restaurants and five star hotels.

ragda patties recipe

To make the ragda patties, you will need to prepare a few dishes before. You can make these a day ahead and keep in the fridge.

So lets begin Step by Step Ragda Patties Recipe:

  • Boil the potatoes till soft and well cooked. When they are still warm, peel and mash them. Add cornflour and salt to the mashed potatoes. A tip – To mash the potatoes easily : Always mash the potatoes when they are hot or warm. They get mashed easily than mashing, when they become cool. Mix the cornflour, red chilli powder and salt well with the mashed potatoes.

  • Check the seasoning and add more salt if required. If within you, something tells you that the mixture is a little loose and needs more binding, add some more cornflour. Make medium sized balls of the mashed potato mixture. Flatten them, shape into round patties and keep aside.

  • Heat oil/ghee on a griddle/tava or in a shallow frying pan. Keep the potato patties on the hot oil in the tava for frying.

frying the potato patties

  • Lift with the spatula and check to see if the base is light browned. Turn over the patties and fry the other side. When this side gets a little browned, turn over again. Fry till the patties become golden brown and crisp from both sides.

  • Keep everything ready for the topping and garnish before you assemble the ragda patties. The potato patties have to be hot or warm before you assemble, so keep everything ready before you fry the patties. Keep he ragda hot or warm. Both the green chutney and the sweet chaat chutney ready. The onions, tomatoes and coriander chopped and kept aside. The sev and all the dry spice powders – chaat masala, cumin seed powder, rock salt/black salt also kept ready.

  • After all of the above, its time to assemble. This is quick and in a minute you can assemble the Ragda Patties. Take the two or three potato patties in a plate.

  • Top up with the chopped onions, tomatoes and some sweetened yogurt if you are using. I have used cashew curd here.  At this stage, you could add a few drops of lemon juice or chopped/grated raw mango.

  • Top it with sev as much you want and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve Ragda Patties immediately.

  12. Keep everything ready for the topping and garnish before you assemble the ragda patties. The potato patties have to be hot or warm before you assemble, so keep everything ready before you fry the patties:
  13. the ragda should be hot or warm

  15. the onions and coriander chopped and kept aside
  16. the sev – I used readymade sev and the only variety I got near my place was a slight thicker variety than the fine sev used in Mumbai.
  17. All the dry powders – chaat masala, cumin seed powder, rock salt/black salt kept at your kitchen table where you will assemble the ragda patties.
  18. Assembling and Topping the Patties:

  23. Then add the green mint coriander chutney.
  24. Add some onions again.

can we use the normal sweet yoghurt in place of cashew curd ?

yes you can use the regular yogurt, sweetened or unsweetened. if using unsweetened, then add some sweet chutney to the ragda patties.

you have to soak the yellow peas overnight and then cook them so soft till they get mashed and mashed easily… for a step by step visual recipe to get the idea of the consistency required for ragda, please check this post: http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/ragda-recipe-ragda/

i do not know what is the other name of ragda. basically it is overcooked, mashed and lightly spiced white peas or chana dal. these are served with aloo patties.

here is how i make it at home: http://vegrecipesofindia.com/ragda-recipe-ragda/

instead of white peas, you can also use chana dal.

thank you sarita.

i know when one is working in a full time job one does not get time to cook and one wants to spend the weekends doing nothing ;-) ask me… i would hardly cook on my holidays when i was working except for baking cakes sometimes.

if u feel the utmost need to join cooking classes, you could do so. at least some basics of cooking they can teach you. yet, however, you could also try recipes at home from my site or the internet and cook.
yes, everybody can cook and so can you. so, you could pick up any recipe and try.

be slow and gentle while cooking for the first few times. don’t be in a hurry or impatience. and the photographs will surely help you while cooking. you could just take a print out the of the recipe and start to cook. do let me know how the recipes turns out.

in fact that was the theme and purpose of this site, when i started out…… to make it like a online virtual visual cooking classes… and i have fairly achieved this purpose.

and yes… all mothers are happy when they see their daughters cooking :-)
