Extremely popular in Western India, the Ragda Patties needs no introduction to the food-lover. For the rest of you, it’s a yummy dish of potato patties, stuffed with spiced safed vatana, and drowned in a tongue-tickling gravy of more safed vatana perked up with onion and spices.

The ample use of spices works well with the bland but pleasant taste of potatoes and the nutty flavour of white peas, to give a well-balanced dish.

Laced with sweet and spicy chutneys, and topped with crunchy sev and papdi, the Ragda Patties is a truly exciting medley of flavours and textures.

A plate of piping hot ragda patties shared with friends huddled under the vendor’s umbrella on a rainy day, is an experience to savour. It is quite filling and can be served as a meal by itself.
