Punjabi Chole Bhature | Chickpeas with Fried Leavened Bread
Punjabi Chole Bhature – the ever popular street food, everyday food, snack and favorite of the young and old alike! Chole(Cholay) is the Punjabi name of this curry made of chickpeas. It is also known in other regions as Chana Masala. Chana Masala and Chole are basically the same curried dish of chickpeas. It may be semi dry or have more gravy and the recipe varies from home to home and Dhaba to Dhaba (Punjabi roadside food stall)!
Bhature, (Bhatoora), is a soft, fluffy deep-fried leavened bread. It is similar to Puri which is its unleavened counterpart. Bhature is most often served with Chole, hence the name of the meal – ‘Chole Bhature’.
Chole is extremely simple to make. This easy recipe delivers a fast and so very yummy, semi dry gravy of chickpeas. Check out the stepwise pictures (slideshow) below. The Bhature is quite simple to make as well (although it may require a little practice). I often make the chole on its own to serve along with salads too.
