How to make Ragda Patties Recipe - Popular Mumbai Street Food

  1. To begin making the Ragda Patties Recipes, we will first cook the peas. Cook the soaked yellow peas until very soft and tender. See How to Cook Lentils/ Dals / Pulses - Video Recipe

  2. Heat Nutralite Classic in a large saucepan on medium heat; add nigella seeds, cumin seeds and allow them to crackle. Add the green chillies, ginger, turmeric powder, and all the other spices and stir for a few seconds.

  3. Turn the heat to low and stir in the cooked peas adding a quarter cup of more water if the peas is too thick. Simmer for 10 minutes until all the spices and the peas are well combined and looks like a mish mash gravy.

  4. Stir in the chopped coriander leaves and keep the ragda aside.

  5. Next we will begin making the patties. 

  6. Combine all the ingredients for the patties except the bread crumbs. Divide them into 5 to 6 circular balls. Roll each portion of the pattice over the bread crumbs.

  7. Preheat a pan and melt the Nutralite Classic spread. Place the pattice and pan fry them until they are golden brown and crisp.

  8. Now that the ragda is ready and the patties are ready we can serve them as and when required. Heat/ warm them just before you are reading to serve for a dinner or a dinner party.
