This irresistible snack of potato patties with thick lentil gravy, garnished with sev and onions, can even serve as meal by itself! the stuffing is a little spicy, but complements the blandness of potatoes well. Also note that you don’t even have to deep-fry the patties, just shallow-fry them with little oil on a non-stick griddle. The finishing touch is the chutney streaked atop the ragda patties provides a perfect touch of sweetness and tanginess.
- Combine the potatoes, cornflour and salt in a bowl and mix well.
- Divide the potato mixture into 8 equal portions and roll each portion into a 75 mm. (2 ½ ") diameter circle. Place 1 tsp of the prepared stuffing in the centre.
- Bring together the edges in the centre to seal the filling inside the potato circle.
- Repeat with the remaining potato mixture and stuffing to make 7 more stuffed patties.
- Cook the patties on a non-stick tava (griddle), using a little oil, till they turn brown in colour from both the sides. Keep aside.
- Drain the safed vatana. Add the salt and 11/2 cups of water and pressure cook for 4 whistles.
- Before opening the lid allow the steam to escape. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida.
- When the seeds crackle, add all the remaining ingredients along with the cooked safed vatana and ¾ cup of water, mix well while mashing the safed vatana slightly so that the gravy thickens.
- Simmer for 10 minutes, while stirring twice in between and keep aside.
- Just before serving, place 2 patties in a plate and pour 1/4th of the hot ragda over it.
- Top it with 1 tbsp khajur imli ki chutney, 2 tbsp of sev and 1 tbsp of onions.
- Serve immediately.
- The mint mixture for the stuffing should be kept in a strainer after grinding once made to allow the excess water to be drained, which will make stuffing the patties easier.
