  1. Prepare the Ragda:
    • Soak the dried white peas in water overnight or for at least 6-8 hours. Drain and rinse them before using.
    • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
    • Add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.
    • Stir in the ginger-garlic paste and green chilies. Sauté for a minute.
    • Add the chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Cook until the tomatoes are soft and well cooked.
    • Add the soaked white peas and mix well.
    • Pour enough water to cover the peas and bring the mixture to a boil.
    • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the peas are tender and the flavors are well incorporated.
    • Add water if needed to adjust the consistency.
    • Stir in the garam masala and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the Pettice:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, cornflour, breadcrumbs, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well to form a smooth dough-like mixture.
    • Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape them into flat round patties.
    • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Gently place the potato patties in the hot oil and fry until they turn golden brown and crispy on both sides.
    • Once cooked, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess oil.
  3. Assemble and Serve:
    • Take a serving plate and place one or two potato patties (pettice) on it.
    • Pour a generous amount of ragda (white peas curry) over the patties.
    • Drizzle tamarind chutney and green chutney over the ragda.
    • Sprinkle chopped onions, fresh coriander leaves, and sev on top for added crunch and flavor.
    • Repeat the process for the second plate.
