Ragda Pattis

Its one of my favourites.
For Pattis :
4 medium potato
half the amount of bread( the crushed quantities of potato and bread should be in 2:1 ratio)
turmeric powder
chilly powder

Mix the above together and mash it properly.It will be like dough.Make a ball in hand and press it gently to give the pattis shape.Shallow fry on low flame in less oil till brown and crispy.

For Ragda
White watana (Yellow peas) Soaked overnight and pressure cooked.
1 small Onion
ginger garlic paste 1/2 tspn
1 tomato
1/2 tspn red chilly powder
turmeric powder
 1/2 tspn Garam masala powder
1/2 tspn Cumin powder
1/2 tspn coriander powder

Heat oil in a pan and saute onion in it till fully cooked.Add Ginger garlic paste n mix.Add tomatoes and salt.Cover it and let it cook for 5 min.
Then add masala, cumin powder, coriander powder and Salt.
Mix well and add pressure cooked watana(peas) along with the water.Adjust the gravy according to your choice.I like a little more gravy so that its juicy to eat.

To serve : take pattis and add ragda on it.Garnish with tamarind - date chutney, chopped onion , coriander, thin shev.

Note : Tamarind - Date chutney is available in Indian store and also can be made as follows :

Soak Tamarind and dates( seedless) in water for about and hour.
Remove water from it and add 1 green chilly, jaggery to taste and salt .If you like mint then add few mint leaves.Also add lil ginger and crush it thoroughly in a mixie/blender.
Adjust water for its thickness.Use less tamarind and more dates.It tastes good.

Yummy....Isnt it?
