Ragda Patties, one of the most famous street foods of Mumbai, is a satiating snack that is loved by people of all ages.

From being a street food, it has grown in stature to become a popular dish in many Indian restaurants all over the world.

This tongue-tickling Ragda Patties treat is made of two components – crisp and succulent patties served with hot and spicy ragda. The ragda is made of cooked white peas in a spiced delicious gravy ; while the tava-cooked patties are made of mashed potatoes, perked up with a proper mix of desi spices.

The ragda can be made spicy or mild, as per your taste. The patties are conveniently tava-cooked and not deep-fried. This gives them a nice mouth-feel, which is crisp outside and soft inside.

In this Ragda Patties recipe, we have stuffed the patties with mint and coriander to give it a flavourful twist. Sometimes, it is also stuffed with soaked chana dal. You can come up with your own version with a different filling too!

You can prepare the patties and the ragda beforehand. Assemble the chaat and top it with crunchy sev and onions just before serving.

Serve Aam Lassi Slush or Watermelon Slush as an afters to this chaat.
