the ragda recipe is very simple and easy to prepare, yet some tips and suggestions for it. firstly, the white peas have to be soaked overnight for a minimum of 8 plus hours. there is no short-cut to it and pressure cooking for more whistles would not work. hence plan this recipe accordingly. secondly, once the white peas are pressure cooked, do not mash it completely. it should be random and mashing is done to only improve the consistency of gravy. lastly, the ragda can easily become thick once it is cooled down. hence, keep adding water and achieve the semi-thick consistency when reusing it.
