Ragda Pattice Recipe/How to make Ragda Pattice
Ragda pattice is one of my first preference if I have guests or gathering at home. As We do not need to do any thing while serving except the assembling part. We can prepare Ragda, Chutneys and Pattice. While serving we just need to reheat and assemble. Many people do not tamper Ragda while serving. But a simple tadka, tamarind and jagerry gives this Ragda a typical street food flavor.
Ragda Pattice is a popular street food of India. You find it any every nook and corner of mumbais street. But You never know how hygienic and fresh the ingredients are. Over a period of time I have become more conscious about these things. Especially for my kid I would any day put in extra effort and make it at home.
If you have chutneys ready at home this chaat does not take long to prepare. Soaking is taken care by peas itself. So you do not need to do any thing except soak it in water over night. You can also soak it in hot water for 3-4 hours and results will be the same.
Giving tadka is all you have to do. And Yummy ragda will be ready. Pattice is also a quick recipe and I prefer it to be shallow fried. Specially when fried pattice does not serve any purpose except gulping extra calories. It also gets too soggy after a while.
Adding smashed potatoes to ragda gives it thick texture. It gives binding to the gravy and makes it thicker.
Same recipe can be prepared using raw bananas instead of potatoes. And you can serve it as a jain chaat also.
