Coming back to the Recipe, talking about that too much is that Ingredient is nothing but Tofu!, that’s what I used in making these Pattice, A little Twist from the Authentic one.., well, it went down good, that’s what we want a clean neat plate.., and asking for a second helping from our kids and you know how its going ? right ?.
I wanted to send this to Tofu event of Seduce your tastebuds of PJ’s and forget to post it on time as always, No excuses sadly :(, I forgot the date !, anyway I will link it to the event, hoping she might accept my late entry if she has not posted her round-up, (please..please…please.. accept my entry) 🙂
RAGDA PATTICE WITH TOFU
TO MAKE RAGDA:
250gms of Dry peas
1 tsp Ginger – Garlic paste
1 tsp Garam masala
2 Medium sized Tomatoes
1 Medium sized Potatoe
1/2 tsp of Sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Amchur powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
2 to 3 tbsp Oil
1/2 cup freshly chopped coriander leaves for Garnishing
1 tbsp of oil
1 tsp of Mustard seeds
1 Sprig of curry leaves
A pinch of Asafoetida
Soak the dry peas overnight with a pinch of soda it makes the peas quite soft. Morning drain and wash the peas well and cook them well with 2 to 3 cups of water in a pressure cooker until soft (may be 3 whistles) with the potatoes. Take a Kadai heat oil and season it with mustard seeds after they splutter add curry leaves then chopped Onions and Ginger-Garlic paste fry them well, means when they change colour and chopped Tomatoes when they cook well add the powders and fry them for a few minutes then add the cooked peas with the water mix well and allow them to boil for a few minutes then mash the potatoes and mix it into it this makes the Gravy thick and a bit of Jaggery if preferred. Then add the required quantity of salt and cook for a few more minutes and garnish with coriander leaves.
Once the Ragda and Pattice are ready it needs to be served in this way…
Take a plate place the pattice and add Ragda over it and chopped onions if you want you can add grated carrot, Beetroot and if you want add some Sev on it.
You can also serve it with Khajur and Imli ki Chutney (Tamarind chutney or Red chutney) or Green Chutney.
Hope you all like and try it out too…………
