Method

- Rinse the white peas in water and then soak them overnight in 3 cups of water. Drain the soaking water when ready to cook.

Instant Pot Method

- Start the instant pot in SAUTE mode and heat oil in it. Add green chili, ginger, asafoetida, and sauté for 30 seconds.

- Add the white peas, spices and water. Stir well.

- Press CANCEL and close the instant pot lid with vent in sealing position.

- Press MANUAL or Pressure Cook mode for 20 minutes. When the instant pot beeps, let the pressure release naturally. Open the lid.

- The ragda might seem a little liquidy. Press SAUTE and let the ragda simmer for about 6-8 minutes. This will thicken the curry. You can also mash a few peas to thicken the consistency.

- Add lime juice and cilantro. Stir and ragda is ready to be served.

Stovetop Pressure Cooker Method

- Heat oil in the pressure cooker on medium-high flame. Add cumin seeds, green chili, ginger, asafoetida, and sauté for 30 seconds.

- Add the white peas, spices and water. Stir well.

- Pressure cook for 2 whistles on high flame. Then change to a medium flame and let it pressure cook for 12-15 minutes.

- Let the pressure release naturally. Check if the peas are not soft, then pressure cook for 5-10 minutes more. Add more water if needed, about half cup. Open the lid.

- If there is more liquid after pressure cooking is done, saute on medium flame (without the lid). This will thicken the curry. You can also mash a few peas to thicken the consistency.

- Add lime juice and cilantro. Stir and ragda is ready to be served.
