Tangy Chhole


This one caught my eye because even after having cooked garbanzo beans a million times, I never tried cooking this dry version of the dish. I usually cook Chhole in gravy to pair it with both rice and paratha (or puri).

The best part about this recipe, as is with most of my favorite recipes is that it is easy and quick. It needs no preparation at all and is yet another recipe without onion and garlic. Not that I am collecting the ones without it but it does help to have more options when people in your family do without those said ingredients.

So look up the recipe for Tangy Chhole on my dear friend Monika’s food blog
http://vegetariansurprises.blogspot.com/2011/11/cholle-chatpate-chana-kulcha.html

And scroll below for my very own pictures of the recipe.


Things done different

I used dry ginger powder in place of freshly grated ginger

I added a couple of whole green chilies to the recipe to spice up the dish a little bit.

I used the leftovers of this dish as a base for Chaat the next day.

  7. Hello!
    Thank you for your comment, I really appreciated!
    It brings a little heat on France, or we need it, here we are in winter and during the night, the temperature is negative.
    This does not have in mind a party at the end of 2011.
    Good meal and champagne accompany all this.
    But all good times, we should not be forgotten that many people in the world, will not eat and does not even have a roof dormir.c is the shame of our civilization.
    Every day is unique,
    Each year is a promise of joy and discovery.
    The year 2012 is a special year for you,
    Thousands of small joys embellish your life,
    And that this new year be for you a year of all the achievements, professional success and personal success
    I wish you a very pleasant day
    friendly
    Chris

    my little gift
