Ragda Pattice – BRO’s favourite Chaat

For me Ragda Pattice associates as My BROs favorite snack; so had to try this when he was around for his exaggerative comments “Tai makes this perfect”.  People love Pani Puri or other crispier chaats but this Dude loves Aloo with Lentil gravy.  He drools on these delectable snacks and I can challenge anyone on his behalf to win against him for number for pattice :P

Normally this is the most common street food eat out I have with my BRO but wanted to make a Fiesta for him, obviously to get many more flattering comments :P

Take couple of Patties on the serving dish, top it with some Ragda . Garnish with tangy and spicy chutney along with some Shev and Finely chopped Onion.

Sending this to EC for her MLLA-19 event the brainchild of Susan and Thanks to My BRO I gave this a try @ home over the street eat out so this also goes to Arundhuti’s Gourmet affair.
