Ragda Paatis is a very popular chaat . It is a one filling meal. It can be easily prepared if you have the soaked peas. Potato tikkis or patties are prepared and served with a delectable dish of peas, topped  with various chutneys.

With this dish on mind, I was on the look out for this recipe from various sources. Nothing seemed to appease me.Atlast, I prepared my sister Gayatri’s  recipe and it turned out awesome. Without much ado let me take you to the recipe. This post is also a part of our Culinary Hoppers Team with the theme “Chaats ”

Let’s get cooking Ragda Patties in steps :

To make ragda

  • Boil peas in a pressure cooker for three whistles. They should be tender.
  • Take oil in a kadai and saute the onions until translucent. Add the ginger garlic paste and let cook for some time. Then, add the tomatoes and allow to cook for sometime.
  • Add the coriander powder, garam masala , chilli powder and salt. Mix well. Allow the spices to blend together.
  • Mash the peas with the ladle and mix into the kadai. Allow to cook for sometime on slow flame.
  • Remove and keep aside.

To make patties :

  • Boil the potatoes and keep aside.
  • Peel the skin and mash them. It is good to add cold water, peel and mash. Allowing them to cool, makes them hard.
  • Make a paste of coriander and green chilly.
  • Mix corn flour, paste and salt together.
  • Heat a flat skillet.
  • Make round,flat thick balls as tikkis.
  • Smear a little oil on the skillet and keep these tikkis.
  • On a slow flame, cook them on both sides until golden brown in colour.

Take a note :

  • Keeping the  flame low  ensures  even  cooking of the patties.
  • You can make around seven to eight  at a time.

To serve :

Take a plate and arrange two patties on it. Pour two tablespoon of prepared ragda over them. Add some sweet chutney and green chutney over it. Finally, decorate with sev and serve ragda patties.

  1. Loved your Ragda Patties totally Jaya. Your dish looks so inviting. I am so craving for that plate of Radga Patties. It is yummy yummy.

  2. Yesterday only, I made ragda pattice, but couldnt click the pics as usual. That is the reason, till date I haven’t posted it on my blog. You have given me a boost to make again this lip smacking chat before my kids turn up so as to click pics. Thanks for inspiration 🙂

  3. I’m a huge fan of raga patties and haven’t had it in a long time. I don’t like the variety they make as street food as they use chana. I love the one with peas. After going through your post..am now craving for some.
