How to make Shahi Pindi Chhole

  1. Prepare a packet in a muslin cloth. Put tea leaves and all whole spices ( cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf etc).
  2. Boil the soaked chickpeas in 1/2 litre water, cloth bag and 1/2 tablespoon of salt for 20 minutes.
  3. After boiling, strain the chickpeas and keep the water aside.
  4. Put chickpeas in a pan. Sprinkle all the powdered spices ( red chilli powder, amchur, Anardana, jeera powder, dry coriander powder, Kasuri methi etc.) properly and don't mix. Keep it aside
  5. Heat oil in a pan. Add ajwain, chopped ginger, slit green chillies and pounded garlic and cook it properly.
  6. Now put this hot and aromatic oil with ginger, garlic, ajwain and chilli over the chickpeas and spices.
  7. Now put it on the flame. Add remaining water in it, stir it and allow it to cook. Turn off the flame
  8. Shahi Pindi Chhole is ready. Serve it with onion and tomato rings, garnished with slit green chillies.
My Tip: Hot oil over the spices will cook all the spices and will go till the base, giving a special taste to chickpeas. So don't mix the spices sprinkled over chickpeas until water is added into it
