  • MDH Chole masala - 2 to 3 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin coriander chilly powder - 1/4th to 1/2 tsp each

How to make Chole Bature

  1. For Chole: Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add cumin seeds and once it crackles add finely chopped onion cubes. Fry on medium flame till light brown. Add ginger garlic paste. Sauté.
  2. Add tomatoes and fry till they are soft. Add all the spices and fry well. Add soaked chick peas. Fry for a minute
  3. Add sufficient water and pressure cook for 6 to 7 whistles or until done. Let it cool and mash few chickpeas to thicken gravy. Keep aside.
  4. For Bhature: Combine baking soda, salt and all purpose flour. Add yogurt and mix to a smooth dough. Apply few drops of oil and knead the dough. Keep in a dark and dry place.
  5. Heat oil for frying till hot. Take large lemon size dough and roll out slightly thick. Fry in hot oil. Transfer on kitchen towel.
  6. Serve immediately with Chole garnished with onion slices, coriander leaves and lemon wedges.
My Tip: Substitute for garam masala would be to make a small potli/bundle with full spices and cook along the gravy. Discard the potli before serving. You may add few spoons of dried pomegranate seeds powder - anardana. Tea bags can be inserted while boiling the chickpeas. Discard tea bag before serving. Adjust spices accordingly. Little warm water can be used for the chole.
