    thanks a lot Grace, Shabana & all for d comments, yes u can even use vatanas instead of peas.


    I tried it. It came out very well. I used vatana instead of chick pea. It really taste like Hotel. My husband praised me alot.Thank You.


    hi.. this looks yummy..will try it this weekend..thanks Salma



    ASAK salma, I was thinking if we could opt with chick pea or not & you made it easier for me since I can't find vatana where I live easily. Thanks allot.


    Dear Salma, If I am not wrong we use vatana (dried white peas) and not chick peas for ragda patties.
