You can add some spices if you wish to. But, it's recommended to keep these aaloo patties or potato pattice very simple. Because we will be adding spices while garnishing and that anyways helps the recipe to turn mouth-watering. I have shallow fried these aaloo tikkis or pattice with very less oil. But, you may choose to deep fry these potato tikkis if eating oily food is not a concern for you.

Cooking method for Ragda Patties Recipe
  1. Soak white peas (or vatana) overnight in water.

  3. Rinse onion, tomato, coriander, green chilli and finely chop them as shown in ingredients image. Also, grate ginger.

  4. Rinse peas with fresh water and transfer to pressure cooker.

  5. Add salt, turmeric powder and enough water (about 350 ml). Pressure cook on high flame for 7 to 8 whistles for peas to turn soft and quite thick and allow cooker to cool down.

    While ragda is being cooked, let's proceed to prepare patties. Time saving hack.
  6. Rinse poha with water 2 to 3 times until water is clear.

  7. Ragda Pattice

    Now transfer mashed potatoes, poha, besan, finely chopped green chilies, grated ginger and salt.

  8. Mix all ingredients well and form thick mixture.

  9. Ragda Pattice

    Take a portion of dough for a pattie and shape into flattened tikki.

  10. Make all tikkis in similar way.

  11. Ragda Pattice

    Heat non-stick pan and add 2 tablespoon of oil. Place all patties on the pan and shallow fry on a medium flame.

    After 7 to 8 minutes check if pattie is crisp by turning side. Then turn all patties with the help of knife or spatula and drizzle another tablespoon of oil.

  13. Aaloo patties are nice crisp on both the sides. So it's time to prepare for serving these patties.

  14. Ragda Pattice

    Once pressure cooker is settled down, Ragda or white peas plain gravy is ready.

    If Ragda or watana gravy is thick then add some water to adjust ragda for a pouring consitency. Make sure to use hot ragda for serving. Serving hot ragda with hot pattice makes this Ragda Pattice recipe deliciously nice.
  15. Wash few mint leaves, little coriander and 1 green chilli. Transfer to grinder jar, add just little water and salt. Grind for few ( 1 to 2) minutes until chutney is ready.

    It's difficult to make just one or two tablespoons of chutney as chutney won't be smooth if you make in small quantities. So you can prepare little more and refrigerate the chutney in ice trays, allow to set and these chutney cubes can be used later.
  16. Ragda Pattice

    Mix all dry spices - coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, red chilli powder, panipuri masala and salt.

    This masala mix enhances the taste of ragda patties. So this can't be optional.
