Here is what's needed:
1 cup Chickpea (Soaked overnight and pressure cooked until soft)
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp roasted Cumin and Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Oil
1) Heat Oil in a pan and add in jeera. When it starts spluttering pour the cooked chickpeas, spice powder and salt to taste.
2) Mash few chickpeas to make the gravy thicker. Add water to bring the curry to pouring consistency. Give a rolling boil and switch off.
P.S: If you like your ragda to be spicy you can add chilli powder.
3-4 boiled Potatoes
1/2 - 1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Chat masala
finely chopped coriander leaves
salt to taste
1) Mash Potatoes and mix well all the ingredients given for Patties except oil and breadcrumbs.
2) Heat a tava. Make small balls of the patties mixture. Roll them into breadcrumbs slightly and flatten them. Place the patties on tava and shallow fry until done.
I did not have breadcrumbs in hand so directly shallow fried the patties on tava with little oil.
Sweet Chutney/Tamarind Chutney:
I just soaked equal parts of tamarind and jaggery together in little water for 1/2 an hour. Squeezed the tamarind out. Added salt and chilli powder to taste. We do not get dates here so skipped it :)
Place 2 patties on a plate. Pour a ladle full of ragda. Top up with little tamarind chutney, finely chopped onion & corinader leaves. Sprinkle some sev on top and serve immediately.
