Monsoon Special Chole Batura


( Click image for enlarged view)

Chole Bature a made for each other pair is an authentic north indian dish with chickpeas. It is my all time favourite specially when it is raining. If one gets hot batura with steaming hot chole what else would one wish for. A few weeks back I was in the same situation n I surprised my hubby with this delightful meal n we enjoyed it.

No Onion No Garlic Chole

Ingredients

3/4 cup chickpea(garbanzo beans)
1 cup diced tomato
2 green chilli slit
1/2 inch ginger
1/4 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
1/4 tsp ajwain (caraway)
2 tsp dhania powder (coriander)
1 tbsp chole masala powder (available in indian stores)
1 tsp amchur powder (dry mango powder)
1/2 tsp garam masala powder(available in indian stores)

Satya, this sure is a great combo on a rainy day. Try making bhatura by kneading the flour with some curd. It tastes good too.
