  2. ( 2 Bay leaves, 2 green cardamom, 1 black cardamom, 4 cloves, star spice, Javitri, amla (2 full and 1 cut in small pieces) and piece of cinnamon).
  3. After boiling if you want you can remove the amla... if you like tangy taste you can keep it in the curry....

  10. Chholay is ready with nice black colour and tangy taste, serve it hot with Rice or Bhatura ......
My Tip: If you want a blacker colour you can use an Iron Pan to cook the Chholay.....
