Chickpea Potato Patties is a multi purpose appetizer which can be relished as a chat or a lip smacking slider or starter by itself accompanied with green chutney, ketchup or tamarind chutney. Being born and brought up in Mumbai, I have been craving for Ragda Patties, a famous indian street food. It’s generally made with only potatoes and services with boiled chickpeas gravy and various indian chutney. This recipe of mine is inspired from the famous Ragda Patties.
This recipe of mine was published in the Society Co Magazine in March 2015

Vegetable White Sauce Toast is crispy toast topped with vegetable white sauce and mozzarella cheese. I actually made this vegetable white sauce as a crepe filling a night before. It clicked to me that it can taste good on top of a toast and it was a hit. You can make this white sauce and refrigerate it. It can be used for baked vegetables or even as crepe filling.
