How to make pattice?

Take 3 medium size boiled and peeled potatoes. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or with clean hands. Add 1/4 TSP of turmeric powder, salt to taste. Mix well to form a smooth dough. Divide the dough into lemon size balls (around 8 portions). Roll the portions into patties shape. Heat a griddle, drizzle 1-2 TSP of oil. Pan fry or shallow fry the patties, fry until both sides are golden brown in color, nice and crispy. Remove from the pan. Keep it aside.
Note: You can Air Fry these pattice also. Checkout the recipe for Air Fryer instructions.

 

 


How to make the Ragda?

Soak the dry white peas (vatana) overnight or minimum of 8 hours. Next day discard the water the peas are soaked in. In a inner pot of Instant Pot, add drained and rinsed peas, some turmeric powder, water and salt to taste. Turn on Instant Pot on manual / pressure cook mode for 8 mins. Let pressure release naturally, around 10 mins. Open the Instant Pot, mix gently. Ragda is ready to be served. Enjoy ragda with some pattice!! 😋

Note: Checkout the recipe for pressure cooker and PIP (Pot In Pot) method cooking as well. Cook white peas and boil potatoes for pattice at the same time.

 

 


Tips and Tricks

    •  
    • Soak dry white peas (vatana) overnight or for minimum of 8 hours.
    • Boil, peel and mash the potatoes before hand. This can be done a day ahead.
    • You can boil the potatoes along with the peas, using PIP (Pot in Pot) method. This works for Instant Pot as well as pressure cooker (Stove Top). Checkout the recipe for instructions on PIP cooking.
    • Sweet and tangy tamarind chutney can be made ahead. This chutney stays fresh for a month into a refrigerator and upto 2 months in freezer.
    • Usually the ragda and pattice are mildly flavored, since various chutneys (condiments), such as  sweet, spicy and tangy are used as a toppings to create a balance of flavors in one dish.
  • Add toppings of your choice. You can customize this recipe depending upon your liking. Add more or less to suite your taste bud.
  • Tamarind chutney is used to achieve sweet and tangy flavor in the chaat.
  • Coriander-mint chutney or Green chutney is used to get spicy flavor in the chaat.
  • Sev is added for that extra crunchiness. Thin sev is preffered in this recipe, but thick sev tastes good too.
  • Dry spices add extra flavor to the chaat – roasted cumin seeds powder, black salt also known as pink Himalayan salt, chaat masala and red chili powder, sprinkle as per taste.

How to store and freeze Ragda Pattice?

  • Ragda Pattice stays fresh for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. I normally store the pattice and the ragda separately. Reheat the ragda and the pattice before serving. Note: Ragda does thicken over the period of time. If required add couple of TBSP of water for gravy consistency.
  • Ragda Pattice freezes well too. You can freeze it for upto 2 months. Just freeze pattice and ragda separately into freezer safe containers. Defrost it in the refrigerator overnight, heat up the ragda and the pattice before serving.
