Ragda pattice is one of my favorite food since the childhood. I alway like the way mom makes. And sharing here her recipe. Other than her recipe, I enjoyed eating at one stall only in Ahmedabad. I don’t know it is still there of not. It was at c g road, near municipal market. I have never ever liked other stalls ragda pattice.

In this recipe, ragda is made from dried peas aka vatana. It is soaked, boiled and simmered with few spices till it gets thick, flowing consistency. The ragda should not be watery at all. It should have thick gravy from some mushy peas.

While the pattice or patties are made from boiled, mashed potatoes. Then formed into patty and then shallow fried. There are no spice powders are added in the potato mixture. For the spice, only green chilies are added. And for the flavors only salt, sugar and lemon juice are added. I have already shared the spicy aloo patties recipe on the blog, this one is much different in terms of taste and texture.

Here ragda and patties both are mild in taste. meaning they have flavors but not spicy. So the spicy taste comes from the green coriander chutney which is drizzled on top.

Serve the ragda pattice right away. Otherwise sev will get soggy. Keep in mind that ragda pattice is always served warm. So If ragda is made ahead of time then warm it up on stovetop or microwave. Same goes for the potato patties.

Serving suggestion: Serve it as a snack. I usually make it as a dinner or light meal on weekends.

Note: Here I have used white vatana just like traditionally used. But if you have green vatana in your pantry then you can use that also. Sometimes I am out of white vatana then I make it with green one. And it tastes good with green vatana too. Just keep in mind that green vatana might take more time to cook than white vatana. So if using green one then increase the cooking time in pressure cooker accordingly.
