This iconic recipe from Mumbai, India has 4 parts

The potato patty or aloo tikki, a scrumptious yellow pea curry or Ragda, a Date and Tamarind chutney and a fresh green chutney. This is assembled – Ragda first, topped by the Pattice or aloo tikka and then it is drizzled with date & tamarind chutney and green chutney and topped with crispy sev or fried chickpea noodles.

Top with coriander and finely diced onion before serving and I like to add some more chutney before serving.
