Sev Usal

This is yet another spicy and tempting Indian snack prepared with ragda. One can make best sev usal at home by just topping up ragda with boiled potatoes,  chopped onions, tomatoes and lots of sev.

The additional garnishing of flavorful green coriander chutney, sweet and tangy date tamarind chutney and spicy garlic chutney makes this Gujarati snack a delightful and palatable experience.

 For Ragda you can use my  Ragda Patties recipe here.

For ragda
1 cup White or yellow Vatana (dried yellow or green peas)
1 onion

1 potato (boiled along with peas)
1/4 cup soaked and dry soya granules
2 tomatoes
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp dhania-jeera powder
1 big spoon ginger, garlic, green chili paste
5-6 black peppers
1 tsp tamarind paste
salt to taste
2 tsp oil

For Garnish : 

Tamarind chutney
coriander- mint chutney
garlic chutney
sev, coriander leaves, 
onion, tomatoes, 

Soak peas overnight in water. then pressure cook till it's done.

To make Ragda :

 make a paste of rest of the ragda ingredients in mixture except oil and granules.
Heat oil in nonstick pan, add the paste and cook it till oil floats on top.

Add pressure cook peas and potatoes mixture& soya granules in it.
If water is not there, add some water to make the right constituency. 

Boil it till you get nice bubbling gravy.

when it's done take one serving bowl pour Raga in a bowl, and top it with chutneys and sev, coriander leaves, onion, tomatoes and eat it the hot and tangy bowl of heaven.
