This is one of the popular Mumbai street food. Back in Mumbai, i use to hog on chaat snacks…..pani puri, sev puri,ragda pattice,bhel puri, dabi batata puri etc etc.Lovley memories of different joints which specialized in each one.
What you need
1) Yellow split lentils–2 cups
2) 4 medium sized Potato
3) 2 tsp turmeric powder
4) 2 tsp salt
5) 1 tsp black salt ( though it’s not black in colour)
6) Pudina chutney
7) Tamarind chutney
8) Chopped Onions
9) 1 tsp chat masala
10) 1 tsp amchor powder
How to do it
—-Boil the potatoes. Cool, peel the skin & mash the potato.. Add turmeric powder,salt & knead to form a smooth mixture (without lumps). Dont over boil the potato, the pattice would turn out sticky.
—Divide the mixture into equal 8 portions.Wash your hand & rub it with oil.Take each portion of potato& make a small ball, but a flatten ball. Repeat the procedure for all the proportions.
—-Heat 1 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan on a low flame.Slip in few potato balls, don’t overcrowd them in the pan.
—Pan-fry the potato balls on the both the sides till crisp golden brown.Add more oil if required .Your pattice are ready.
—Soak the yellow split lentil overnight. Boil them in pressure cooker. We need a semi-mashed lentil. To get the desired consistency we require more time to boil. So, 1st boil over a low flame for 1st whistle, than put it over high flame for next 4 whistle.Add termeric powder while boiling.
–Place the Pattice in a serving plate.
—Pour ragda on top of it.
—I like it little Generously.
— Sprinkle tararind chutney + pudina chutney+ pinch of Black slat+ amchoor powder+chaat masala+ chopped onions
Enjoy your ragda pattice. The topping on the ragda-pattice may differ as per your choice of taste.
