I wanted to try ragada patties , followed the same recipe except for patties I tried making it with Couscous. Loved this a lot ...you can either make it with the peas gravy or just can have the patties alone along with salad and bread
Ingredients needed :
- Couscous - 1 cup
- Potatoes - 2
- Carrot (Opt.) - 1
- Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp.
Peel carrot skin and grate it and set aside ..peel the potato skin and chop it into pieces and take a pan and boil it well with reqd. amount of water, once done take the potato pieces alone and allow it to cool completely , then mash the potatoes and keep it aside ...if you have any excess water , don't discard it use it to cook the couscous.
In the same pan add little more water and allow it to boil well then add a tsp. of oil + salt and add the couscous and switch off the flame and keep it closed for few mins ..couscous will observe all water, take a fork and spread the grains gently .
Take a bowl and add the couscous + mashed potatoes + grated carrot + salt + chilli powder and mix it well ...then take a little mixture and shape it into patties and arrange it in a plate ...once done keep the patties in freezer for 10 -15 mins. (this helps in frying the patties without breaking )..
Take a non stick tava and place the patties and add oil and fry it well on both sides and then serve it ...
If you want to make it along with the peas gravy then check this recipe :
