Ragda Patties / Aloo Tikki & Ragda Recipe

Happy Onam Wishes To All who Celebrate this grand Festival. Actually i planned to share few Onam Sadya recipes but couldn't do it may be next year will try to share. Now coming to today's recipe Ragda Patties / Ragda Pattice, Popular Indian chaat or one of the famous Mumbai's Street side food. But i have tasted this refreshing and yummy chaat in my hometown chaat shops. I still remember that shop which was near to my home in salem town area, they sell all kind of snacks/deep fried snacks, sweets, chaat recipes and I am a big fan of their Chaats - Ragda Pattice, Samosa Chaat, Cutlet Chaat, Pani Puir, Masala Puri, Kachoris, Dahi Puri & so on. A plate of this Ragda Pattice is just Rs.5 (13 yrs back) with so yummy taste and so many days this platter was my dinner meal. Really this is so filling, healthy and delicious snack/meal.

I usually make this Ragda Patties using the Peas chaat which i have already shared. But this time not in a mood to cook so checked for one easy breezy Ragda recipe and happy to find it in Dassana's space. Without any second thought i tried it and it turned out so good and we loved this simple Ragda with Aloo Tikkis, paired so well. Thanks Dassana for this quick and yummy Ragda recipe.
