March 1, 2014

During my college days we used to regularly eat Chole Bhature at Gurukripa Sion.  Still remember those days and taste of this dish which is Mumbai famous street food.  Today, I, give you my version of this dish Chole.

Coriander powder                     1 teaspoon
Tumeric powder                        1/4 teaspoon
Chole Masala                              1 tablespoon
Amchur powder                         1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala                            1/4 teaspoon
Jaggery                                        1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste

Grind to paste

Onions                  2 nos
Tomato                 2 nos
Green chilly         1 no
Ginger                   1 teaspoon
Garlic                     1 teaspoon


Oil                                         2 tablespoons
Bay leaf                                1 no


Coriander                          1 tablespoon chopped

Boil the chick peas in 4 cups of water in a cooker for 5 minutes.

In a kadai heat oil add the bay leaf, ground paste and fry well till oil separates.  Then add the cooked chick peas, chilly, coriander, chole, amchur, turmeric powder and salt mix well. Then add the water in which the chick peas was cooked give it a quick stir.  Cook on high flame for 2 minutes.  Cover with lid lower the flame and cook for 15 minutes.  Add the garam masala, jaggery  cook again for 5 minutes. Garnish with coriander and fried potatoes.  Serve hot with puris or Bhatura.  I prepared it dry with very little gravy.  You may adjust the gravy to your choice.
