Green Peas Patties

Stuffed Peas Patties

Every housewife has her own share of favourite recipes. And these tasty patties have a special place in my heart. 

As a newly-wed bride, I discovered that Green pea kachoris were frequently made at my in-laws’.Now I preferred these patties over kachoris; and so I started making this simple Gujrati fried recipe incredibly versatile. 

Taught to me by my mother, I also learnt how to serve these ‘non-tikkis’ as a popular starter, as a traditional Gujrati farsaan item and even on days when you’d like to make a filling meal out of chaat by serving it for Ragada Patties! 

And just like that, my in-laws too were hooked and started favouring my patties over the kachoris! 

Try it out yourself and I won’t be surprised if your family falls in love with it too! You can even experiment and try a Jain version using bananas!
