Chole

Chole Bhature is one dish that's very famous in India.Its one of my favourite Punjabi dish .Usually we make pooris with chole but last month i tried making bhatures at home .It turned out to be too good went very well with the chole.
Ingredients:
1.5 cup kabuli chana /chick peas (soaked overnight in water)
1 large onion chopped finely
2 medium sized tomatoes finely chopped
1" ginger cut into juliennes
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
1/2 tsp amchur/dry mango powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
2 bay leaves
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste.

Method:
  • Soak the chanas/chickpeas overnight  in enough water .
  • Next day wash the chanas well before boiling.
    Pressure cook the chanas with salt and 1/2 tsp sugar (optional) for about 5-6 whistles /till soft.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai/vessel ,add bay leaves,cumin seeds, chopped  ginger and saute for a min.
  • Then add the chopped onions and saute till onion turn soft & translucent.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes  and fry till oil separates .
  • Now mix in the powdered masalas & the cooked chickpeas/kabuli chana.
