  1. For Chole: Soak the kabuli chana for six hours / overnight . Drain excess water and pressure cook for half an hour, along with 5 dry amla pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a vessel . Add cumin seeds / ajwain. Now add bay leaf, half green chillies, ginger, and saute. Add tomatoes and saute.
  3. Add boiled Chole and rest of the seasoning and cook for ten minutes.
  4. Garnish with tomato slices, chopped green chillies, and ginger julians and chopped corriander.
  5. Enjoy with lemon and green pudina chutney
  6. For bhature: Make a dough of refined flour, salt, oil and curd with lukewarm water. Dough should be completely soft.
  7. Cover and let it rest for five hours to ferment.
  8. It would rise a bit. And now make balls of the dough and flatten with a rolling pin.
  9. Deep fry in hot oil. Keep pressing with laddle while frying so that they swell up properly.
  10. Serve hot with chole prepared.

My Tip:

While kneading the dough of bhature keep it loosened as much possible to get perfect bhature.
