          chole recipe | Punjabi chole | roadside chole | Punjabi chana masala | with 18 amazing images.

          chole is a very popular roadside chole chaat which is also called Punjabi chana masala. Who can resist the masaledar taste and tempting aroma of Chole? A popular chaat famous all across the country, and now all over the globe, chole features boiled white chickpeas flavoured with a wide range of spice powders, notably a special Chole Masala, along with onions, ginger and garlic.

          Special aspect of this famous roadside chole is the cooking of the chana with tea, to give a rich flavour and colour to it. chole has too many variations and every Indian household has their own way of preparing it, this recipe is a Punjabi style of preparing the tongue licking chole!!

          chole is one of the easiest and tastiest Punjabi sabzi. chole is a versatile dish as it can be had with any Indian bread be it puris, bhatura, roti, Paratha, naans or a kulcha.

          Notes on Punjabi chana masala. 1. For pressure cooking kabuli chana for the Punjabi chole recipe, take a deep bowl, add the kabuli chana and cover them with enough water. Cover it with a lid and keep aside to soak for 8 hours. If you are in a hurry and do not have much time then you can soak them in hot water and cover it. It will be done in 4 hours. 2. Drain the kabuli chana well using a strainer. You can reserve the water and use it later while cooking at a later stage. 3. We have added finely chopped ginger as it gives a better flavour. Always use a very sharp knife to chop ingredients finely. 4. Mash the kabuli chana once lightly using a masher, do not over mash it. This light mashing thickens the gravy and gives a great taste.

          Punjabi chole has gained its popularity in Indian resataurants as well as sold on Indian streets along with bhature! Also, you can have Punjabi chana masala at any given point of the day be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

          Yes, I did follow the instructions and turned out to be a yummy treat. The unique omission was tomato and it turned out to be delicious. I''m a part time cook at home in the Times of COVID-19 and I am enjoying my retirement with cooking therapy.

          Follow the recipe is the trick. I somehow don''t like the tea bags to be added and have always avoided it. Tastes awesome without it too. The only change I do is to pressure cook the chana for 5-6 whistles to get them soft and completely cook. Tastes superb and this is an all time hit in my family. Thank you for being the secret recipe to all my dishes ??

          Why the tea bag is required to boil with chole?
          | Hide Replies
          Tarla Dalal    Hi Rumia, that’s because the tea bags help in giving chole a dark brown/black color,but for a deeper darker brown color, you can add more tea bags. And before you start wondering, let me assure you that the tea bags do not hamper the taste of chickpeas in any way. Happy Cooking!!!
