This dish actually makes a complete meal and one that takes very little cooking, especially if you have planned ahead and soaked the peas a day before. You can use a filling of your choice for the patties like peas, french beans, paneer, corn etc. I also like to eat just the ragda topped with the onion and chutneys with pav instead of the patties.
