|✔ How to make Aloo Tikki|
✔ How to make Ragda
- 1 Cup White Peas
- 1 Medium Size Potato
- 2 Pinch Turmeric Powder
- Salt As Required
- 3 Cups Water
- 1 tbsp Oil
- 1 Onion
- 1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
- 2 Small Tomato
- 1 tsp Chilli Powder
- 1 tsp Coriander Powder
- ¼ tsp Garam Masala Powder
- Salt To Adjust
- ¼ tsp Jeera Powder
- Coriander Leaves For Garnishing
- Soak the white peas (they are slightly cream or cream-yellow in color), overnight or for a minimum time of 8 hours. The next day, you will see beautiful smooth rounded cream yellow-colored peas almost doubled in size. Peel the skin of the potato, rinse and chop it roughly. Keep the potato immersed in water till use to avoid discoloration. Then, measure the turmeric powder, salt and keep aside.
- Rinse the peas well in running water and drain them thoroughly.
- To the peas, add the chopped potato, turmeric powder, and required salt.
- Pour 3 cups of water and give a quick stir.
- First, pressure cook for 5 whistles on a low flame. When the pressure subsides down on its own in the cooker, open the lid and check to see if the peas are cooked. These peas take a long time to cook, in case, if they are not cooked completely, pressure cook again for 2 to 3 whistles (I cooked again). Generally, some peas get cooked, whereas a few remain partially cooked.
- Mash the cooked ragda slightly. But don’t overdo it, while mashing, mash it in such a way that there are some whole peas here and there.
- Now, chop the onion and tomatoes finely.
- Then, measure the ginger-garlic paste, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, salt and keep everything by side.
- Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, then add the onion and saute till translucent. Now, add the ginger-garlic paste and saute till the raw smell leaves.
- Add the tomatoes and saute them again till mushy.
- Now, add the chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, and mix well.
- Now, add the mashed peas and mix again.
- Add very little salt only, as we have added already while cooking the white peas. Cook for 5 more minutes in low flame. Once the peas have become soft, check for the consistency of the ragda. If it is slightly watery, then evaporate the water by cooking the ragda for another 5 minutes without the lid. The ragda should not be very thick nor watery.
- Finally, sprinkle jeera powder and coriander leaves. Switch off the flame, when the gravy is slightly watery itself, as it can easily become thick once it is cooled down.
