  3. Take oil in a cooker. When it heats add bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon, elaichi, asafoetida, cumin seeds.
  4. Saute for 30 seconds and then add chopped onions.
  5. Saute till they become brown and then add the tomato onion paste.
  6. Saute till raw smell goes away and add dry spices like coriander powder, turmeric, chilli powder.
  7. Add salt and chole. Mix everything properly.
  8. Add garam masala or chole masala and crushed kasuri methi.
  9. Add 3 cups of water and cover the cooker.
  10. Take 6 to 8 whistles and let the pressure release by itself.
  11. Open the cooker and check whether the chole have become soft.

My Tip: As we are cooking chhole along with spices directly in cooker the spices get absorbed nicely into chhole.
