When I was browsing my recipe book that I wrote before marriage, it had this Ragda patties recipe. When I saw the spelling and ingredient measurements I had written, I can’t stop laughing. It clearly show how blank I was in cooking and about that specific recipe too. Then I asked my friend Sangeeta about the recipe. She shared one easy version through which I got an idea and I came up with my own version combining both. I don’t think I had tasted this chaat before. But I was sure this will be a hit seeing the ingredients and recipe. And yes, I loved it a lot. I thought I will post this recipe yesterday, but had no time to edit and post. So here’s my version of ragda pattice which I assure will turn out yum and you will love it.

Ragda pattice recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snack

Potato – 4

Bread crumbs – 1/4 cup

Green chilli – 1 finely chopped

Turmeric – 1/4 tsp

Chopped coriander leaves – 2 tbsp

Salt & water – As needed

To serve as needed

Red chutney (Sweet chutney)

Green chutney

Plain sev

Finely chopped onion

Chaat masala


  1. Soak peas overnight. Drain water and pressure cook by adding water just to immerse it, along with turmeric, little salt and a pinch of asafoetida, for 4 whistles. Once done, slightly mash it. (Should be half mashed and half seen whole).
  2. 1-cook
  3. Heat oil in a kadai, add ginger garlic paste (I used my garlic press to get some fresh ginger garlic). In low flame, add red chilli powder, garam masala powder, a pinch of asafoetida. Mix well. Add cooked peas, tamarind extract and jaggery.
  4. 2-temper
  5. Mix well. Add two cups water and simmer for 8 minutes. Once thick, add coriander leaves and switch off the flame. It gets thickened as it cools, so switch off accordingly.
  6. 3-boil
  7. For patties, cook quartered potatoes with very little water for 3 whistles. Once done, cool down, peel the skin off. In a mixing bowl, add coriander leaves, salt, green chilli and bread crumbs.
  8. 4-patty
  9. Mix to make dough, make equal sized balls.
  10. 5-dough
  11. Make patties out of it. Heat tawa and drizzle oil. Cook the patties both sides until golden. While cooking, gently press it to ensure even browning.
  12. 6-patty
  13. To serve, gather all the ingredients needed, place a couple of patties over the serving plate.
  14. 7-done
  15. Add warm ragda over it generously. Add some green chutney, generous sweet chutney, onion, coriander leaves, chaat masala and sev, Serve.
  16. 8-ready


    • Adjust water quantity in ragda to get the right consistency.
    • I used 1 tsp tamarind to extract tamarind juice.
    • Cook potatoes carefully, if over cooked, it becomes very mushy when we make patty.
    • Add bread crumbs generously too, to make it tasty and also it helps in binding the patty stiff.

This is very filling and delicious, with all those chutneys, sev on top of this potato patty and the delicious ragda.

  2. I was waiting for this recipe.. awesome... 2 doubts.. 1. Can I deep fry the patties, 2. Can I use dried green peas? Thanx in advance

    1. Yes you can deep fry. Green peas not sure - I think green peas has different flavor from these white ones. Not sure how it would taste.

  9. Hi Raks..

    I just tried this recipe last night and it was a super duper hit. Excellent measurements. Especially, Ragda recipe is the best, super fast and the taste came out just like the chat centers.. I liked the fact that, several other recipes used the same onion tomato concoction and your's did not. Thank you so much!
