Ragda Pattice ( Potato Patties Served With Flavorful Peas Curry)

'Ragda' is the curry part of the dish made up of dried white peas and 'pattice' is basically a kind of potato cutlet. Ragda pattice is actually a street food snack, but it can also be a full meal in itself. The ragda and pattice are prepared separately and are assembled just before serving. This recipe was shared by a friend and it definitely is one of the best I have tried so far.
