Weekends are times for family and fun, and there's nothing more satisfying than preparing a nice delicious meal that all of you would enjoy together. But if you don't want to spend most of your time cooking in the kitchen, a bit of prudence and planning can get you both, fun time with your family and loads of compliments for your cooking!! Here's one of my husband's favourite dishes: Ragda (curry made of dried white peas) poured over delicious Potato Patties (cutlets). Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine!!
3 cups dehydrated white peas, soaked overnight or at least for 3-4 hours
3 cup water
3 green chillies
1 tbsp chopped coriander
Spices: 2 tsp red chilli powder, turmeric, sugar (optional) and garam masala, salt - to taste
4 potatoes boiled, peeled, mashed
1/4 cup semolina (rawa) or cornflour
1/2 cup bread crumbs
8-10 green chillies
1/10th piece of a medium ginger
3-4 large tbsp oil
Spices: 1-2 tsp salt, garam masala, and lemon juice
Mash the potatoes and peas separately and then mix them in a bowl. Grind the ginger and green chillies to form a paste and add this alongwith all other spices to the mixture. Mix in the bread crumbs and finally the semolina (rawa) one spoon at a time, only to make the mixture hold together firmly. Grease your palms and roll a small amount of mixture into cutlets or patties. Roast 3-4 at a time on a greased hot griddle on medium-high flame.Flip onto the other side till both sides are crisp and golden brown.
