Notes
• Always cook patties first, and then ragda, otherwise ragda will become dry and thick.
• Garnish the other ingredients always as per your taste and choice.
• You can soak white peas day before, then next day drain it and freeze it into the Ziploc bag. So you can use it for ragda any time instantly. You can store soaked peas up to a month into the freezer.
