Ragda Pattice

How to make Ragda Pattice Chaat | Mumbai Style Ragda Pattice Recipe with step by step photos | Mumbai Street Food - Ragda Patties | Lip smacking Ragda Pattice Recipe..

Hello Friends,

I am back with one more super delicious, lip smacking, healthy snack recipe for you. Sharing recipe with step by step photos..

Ragda Pattice is a very popular Mumbai street food It is super scrumptious and my all time favorite snack. Did you know it is considered as low fat, fiber rich healthy snack option. 

Ragda Pattice is an excellent combo of potato patties which are topped with nicely cooked dried peas, sweet tamarind & dates chutney, spicy green coriander mint chutney and garnished with chopped onion, coriander leaves and nylon sev.

Do you know the meaning of word ragda! The Ragda word is derived from the Hindi word "Ragadna" which means to rub. In simple words dried white peas are cooked on a slow flame for a very long time until very smooth and creamy and thus, you need to press the peas very hard with back of ladle spoon.


This technique is mainly followed by street food vendors as dried white peas, even if soaked overnight needs long cooking hours. It's good to use a pressure cooker and allow 5-6 whistles. The thumb rule of cooking dried peas for ragda is that - the more smoother it is the more tastier it is... So I guess that's why Ragda name is given to this dish.. 

Coming back to pattice, if you're Mumbaikar, you must be knowing that for pattice preparation, use of pav - Bun bread is must. The street vendors mainly use dried leftover pav for this recipe.. But at home, we always love to add fresh and healthy ingredients so that's why I have used fresh bun bread crumbs. Add bread crumbs in a good quantity as that will make your pattice more crisp. I believe cooking is all about food preferences so follow the way your family want to relish this dish. 

So what we require for this ragda pattice combo

1. Ragda - Spicy Dried Peas Curry 
2. Pattice - Potato Patty - Cutlet
3. Sweet Tamarind Date Chutney 
4. Spicy green chutney 
5. Finely chopped onions
