Ragda Recipe - How to make Ragda for Chaats

Ragda Recipe
Ragda Recipe is used in many chaats like Ragda Patties(which I will post soon),Dahi Chaat,Samosa Chaat or even for Aloo Tikki Chaat etc.It is made with yellow peas and gives nice volume and suitable for serving when you have guests at home.This is very easy to make and takes less time too when you have the chutneys ready.

I made this Ragda recipe many months back when I was craving for chaats but was not able to relish chaats in restaurants.This baby in me never allowed to have chaats and many of my favs in restaurants yes I was limited only to pongal everytime I visited restaurants that even mittu started teasing me that the baby will come out and ask only for pongal :)
