Since I have started cooking, I have tried several different recipes of chole. Each time I add/eliminate some ingredients. Even the quantity varies each time. This recipe is not authentic but the result is some thing all my family & friends like.
1 Green chilli slit lengthwise
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
2 tsp Chole masaala
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Oil
Cook the soaked chickpeas with some salt till soft but not mushy, keep aside.
Add turmeric, chilli powder and coriander powder saute.
Now add the finely chopped tomatoes saute till the mixture leaves oil.
Add the cooked chickpeas with the water. Mash some of the chickpeas with the back of the ladle.
Add the chole masala.
Mix well and let it boil on a slow flame & simmer for 5 minutes
The trick is do all the procedure on a low heat.
Serve hot with Kulcha, tikki, Paratha, Bhatura, Puri or even chapati.
I served mine with Shrikhand & Puri.
