Procedure for ragada

  • Rinse and soak the dried peas. Soak overnight or for about six hours in enough water.
  • Drain the water and rinse the dried peas after the soaking period.
  • In a pressure cooker, place the above rinsed peas with turmeric powder, asafoetida, oil and salt. Add water and mix well. Pressure cook for 20 minutes on medium to high heat.
  • When the pressure falls in the cooker on its own, open the check to see if the peas are cooked thoroughly. (These peas take a long time to cook, in case the peas are not properly cooked then let them cook for 10 more minutes.)

  • Boil the potatoes on medium heat either in a sauce pot with water or pressure cook them.
  • Once the potatoes cool down peel them and roughly mash them.
  • Add all the rest of the ingredients and mix them well.
  • Now roll out small portions of the potato mixture into a ball and flatten it to make  a patty. Repeat to make all the patties.
  • shallow fry the patties on a nonstick pan till the patties crisp and golden brown.

Assembly of raged patties

  • Place 2 or 3 patties in a shallow plate and pour the ragada over it
  • Top with both the chutneys and sev and chopped coriander


Serve to Perumal and enjoy the Prasadam.
