Dried White Peas and Batura (Chana Batura)

Yes, the name sounds different or is it the word error.
Hmm, I was bored of having Chana Batura everytime so though of replacing it by Ragda.

Here is the recipe for white peas masala:


  • 1 and 1/2 cup white peas soaked and pressure cooker till soft.
  • 1 big onion chopped in small pcs.
  • 2 medium size tomato roughly chopped.
  • 1 tsp each of mustard and cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander powder 
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp and 1/4 tsp red kashmiri chilli powder (Incase of no kashmiri chili, add as per your choice for spiciness) 
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 3/4 tsp mango powder (Amchur)
  • 2 pinch of asafoetida
  • Oil
  • Salt as per taste
  • 5-6 curry leaves
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing
  • In a kadhai, splutter mustard and cumin seeds.
  • Add chopped onion and fry this translucent and sprinkle 2 pinch of asafoetida with curry leaves in medium flame.
  • Now mix the tomatoes and fry in oil til mushy.
  • Once the tomatoes are done, lower the flame and add coriander powder, cumin powder, mango powder, turmeric powder and salt as per required.
  • When masala is done well (approx 7-8mins) add the boiled white peas to it and give a boil for 2mins in medium flame stirring to avoid burns.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.
Enjoy this with Pav, Batura or Chapati. Taste is yum!!!
