About Punjabi Chole Masala / Chana Masala / Chickpeas Recipe

Chole / Chickpeas is a easy yet delicious dish and a hit for guests or parties. It’s a favourite dish of my family and we like it with bhatura’s or puri. There are so many recipes for making chole, but I like this recipe. This is a easy recipe and it’s a hit in my family. You can easily make it and surprise your guests with a yummy treat. You can serve masala chole with poori, fulka or roti but it taste great with bhatura. For guests a hit menu is Chole Masala with Poori accompanied with Jeera Rice, Boondi Raita and Sewai kheer.

How to make Punjabi Chole Masala / Chana Masala / Chickpeas

  1. Pressure cook chickpeas along with potato, ½ tsp salt and 3 cup water, cook till tender. I used to cook till 4 whistles but it depends on your pressure cooker brand so after 4 whistles check if they cooked or not.
  2. Mash the cooked potato and keep it aside. Grind all the ingredients listed under “for masala” and keep the paste aside.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick pan or heavy bottomed wok, add bay leaf and stir.
  4. Add finely chopped onions and a pinch of salt.
  5. Cook the onions till golden brown, add the masala paste and mix properly.
  6. Cook till oil get separated from masala, add some water and cook stirring continuously for 2-3 minutes or till water get evaporated. It helps to cook the masala properly.
  7. Add red chilli powder, goda masala, cumin powder, salt as per taste, mix properly and cook for a minute.
  8. Add the mashed potatoes, mix well and cook for a minute.
  9. Add curd and cook stirring continuously for 2-3 minutes. If you don’t have curd you can use lemon juice or tamarind.
  10. Mix well and cook covered for 10-15 minutes. Check after every few minutes and stir the mixture. Cook till desired consistency.
  11. Punjabi chole is ready, garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and enjoy with puri or bhatura or roti.
  12. To make Punjabi chole you need to soak the chole /chickpeas overnight (approx. 8 to 10 hours) so be prepared a day ahead. For good results soak the chickpeas in hot water.
