Ragda Patties

Today is my final dish of this week's theme streetfoods/condiments,last but not least yes am posting today our family favourite street food aka chaat food Ragda patties. Actually its been more than 5 years i tasted this ragda patties in India, but after then seriously i wanted to try this chaat food at home as we dont get chaat foods easily here in Paris. Chaat foods in Paris thats definitely a hard task and it like searching for a treasure, obviously if you are craving for chaat foods/streets foods here you need to make yourself at home. When i chosed this week's theme as street foods/condiments, i know for the letter 'R' i'll be making this ragda patties. I prepared this droolworthy ragda patties few days back, needless to say we had a feast at home.

I prepared this delicious ragda patties from the scratch since i had all the ingredients at home. This dish goes for two parts, the one is ragda which is prepared by soaked and cooked white peas with spices and the second part is making patties aka tikkis with potatoes.While serving, two or three patties are covered with this stew called ragda as sauce and garnished with chopped onions,coriander leaves, served with spicy green chutney and sweet dates chutney thats it, now just enjoy this incredible chaat food.This dish may goes for a long cooking process but definitely a worth to try, you can have a filling brunch or a snack if you have this ragda patties.
