Best Way To Learn How To Make Chole Bhature

 

Straight from a Punjabi kitchen – garma garam, Chole Bhature/Chana Bhatura is a very famous Punjabi dish. Any restaurant, street shops, or roadside eateries (dhaba), is incomplete without Chole Bhature on its menu.

You can bet on your savings that chola bhatura would be there without fail. This dish is one of the most eaten dishes in the Northern part of India. It can be also served as a snack, breakfast as well as lunch or dinner.

Anywhere you go in India you can’t miss it. ‘Chole Bhature’ is a Hindi phrase, and in that Chole/Chana is a spicy and tangy chickpea curry. Nothing to beat the street food but I prefer to make them at home because making them at home is super easy and healthier too.

The fried flatbreads are called bhature/bhatura. The combination of ‘Chickpea Curry’ and ‘Fried Flatbreads’ is known as ‘Chole Bhature’. At FoodAllTime you can also learn the art of making feather soft bhaturas without yeast served with chickpeas cooked in a pool of rustic spices.

Chole accompanied with Bhautra is a satisfying authentic tasting meal which is relished by everyone. They are a great source of protein and is very low in calories and rich in fibre. Boiled Chickpeas are sautéed with onion and tomatoes where tamarind lends its tangy flavour and it is flavoured with strong and warming flavours of spices of FoodAllTime Garam Masala to create this North Indian delicacy. It’s a delicious and super-easy brunch.

Recipe Notes


  • Garnishing with finely sliced onions (lengthwise) gives a crunchy flavour.
  • To get the colour in the chole, add amla powder to the masala instead of tea bags. It is more healthy and won’t leave a bitter aftertaste in your mouth.
  • If you don’t have amla powder then you can grate raw amla and add or chop it into pieces and add while pressure cooking the chole.
