Ragda Pattice – My Delicacy on a Thrilling Thursday

Hello friends!! I promised I’ll get back with a different post, but I’m here with a recipe yet again. I was casually chatting with my mom yesterday when she said she would make Ragda Pattice today. That is when, bingo, I got an idea. I insisted that I’ll make it. She agreed. The recipe is basically my mom’s tried and tested expert recipe. She’s been making it since ages and I’ve been eating it since ages. But till date, I’d never chanced upon an opportunity to make it. Finally when I got the opportunity today, I grabbed it. In the course of making it, I had my mom’s continuous guidance as I didn’t want it to go wrong.  And thus, I came out with a fool proof –delicious Ragda Pattice.
I usually dedicate my reviews on novels to the people who suggest the novels to me. Today on the eve of Valentine’s Day, I wish to dedicate this delicacy to Mayur. Mayur, this dish was made just with you on my mind. That’s the reason probably it turned out to be perfect (that’s the feedback I received, especially from my dad, who is my food critic). Now let’s just rush to check out how the delicious Ragda Pattice is made.

1 teaspoon Jeera
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
1 teaspoon chilli powder
2 Tomatoes finely chopped
250 gms Chana (boiled)
Water as per requirement based on the consistency
Oil – about 1 ½  tbsp
For the masala
3 medium sized onions (cubed)
3 big green chillies
5-6 cloves of garlic
2 inch Ginger piece
1 tbsp Coriander seeds
2 teaspoons amchur powder
1 teaspoon Turmeric powder
Salt as per taste
For the Pattice
3 big sized potatoes boiled
6 bread slices (soaked in water for about 1 minute)
1 Teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garam masala Powder
1 teaspoon Jeera Powder
Coriander leaves finely chopped
Salt as per taste
Oil for shallow frying
For Garnishing
 2 onions finely chopped
Coriander leaves finely chopped
Take all the ingredients that go into the making of the masala and grind it into a fine paste. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add jeera to it and fry it for a while. Then add the garam masala powder and fry it. Then add in the ground masala and fry nicely till it sheds it raw odour. Add salt, chopped tomatoes and boiled chana to it and mix well. Add water as per your requirement. Pressure cook the same with one whistle only. After about half an hour bring to boil the pressure cooked mixture.
Mash the boiled potatoes finely. Add the soaked bread by squeezing out the water completely. Add in the powdered jeera, garam masala powder, turmeric, chopped coriander leaves and salt and mix well. Make small round balls, flatten it and shallow fry it on both sides in oil.
Now that your Ragda Pattice is ready serve it hot with the garnishing.
So, would you guys try it out? Give it a try for sure. The list of ingredients may scare you (when my mom told me the ingredients and method orally yesterday, I swear I didn’t catch a single ingredient in it). But once you try your hand at it step by step, you’d end up telling “That’s it, it’s really simple”.
Without wasting your time, treat your loved ones with this yummy dish.
See you soon again soon…
Let me remind you again, I’m celebrating my blog’s first birthday this month end> So you’d be seeing a variety of posts in the days to come.
