Ragda Recipe
Ragda/Yellow Peas Masala Chaat is one of our family's favorite chaat. Ragda is a versatile dish, that you can serve it in number of way, you can serve it as such with some finely chopped onions, tomato and crispy fine sev on top. And also you use it for Masala Puri Chaat, Samosa Chaat, Ragda Patties, Aloo Tikki Chaat and Masala Papdi Chaat(Coming up Next). There are many recipes for Ragda/Yellow Peas Masala I have already shared 2 different recipes, a simple version of Ragda and Green Peas Masala Chaat.
This version of Ragda is slightly spicy, tangy and addictive recipe. I added a ladle of Tamarind Sweet Chutney to the boiling ragda and it added a special tangy mildly sweet to Ragda/Yellow Peas Masala. You can also replace the tamarind chutney with Amchur powder and some hint of sugar or jaggery. Now off to the recipe...
