You’ll need jaggery, mustard seeds, tamarind chutney and paste, vatana. Oh yeah, and a pressure cooker.

I started this blog to force myself into doing two necessary, important things that have thus far avoided any mention on my lifely to-do lists:

My earlier experiments with bhel puri and chivda were fun. I still haven’t told you about the chivda, but we’ll get there. My New Year’s Eve experiment, however, is the real deal.

I sweated through 24 chilies, 14 potatoes, 8 spices, three pressure cookers, six hours in the kitchen, and two chutneys to bring you the queen of Mumbai street cuisine: ragda pattice.

More on this one to come. But in the meantime, here’s another sneak peek.
