Chole Bhature

I thought of making something else then the usual roti sabji for dinner tonight, so while coming back from office i got soaked chickpeas from market and cooked whole bhature for dinner, so here is the recipe for the same


Boiled chickpeas / chole – 1 cup
2 Tomatos + 1 Onion + 2 Garlic cloves + 1 small piece Ginger + 2 Green chillies – paste 2 cups
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Red Chilly powder – 2 tsp
Coriander Powder – 2 tsp
Garam Masala – 2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Asafoetida / hing – 1/2 tsp



1 tsp cumin seeds/jeera
1 large indian bay leaf/tej patta
2 inch cinnamon/dal chini
2-3 cloves/lavang
2 green cardamom/choti elachi
2-3 black peppercorn



  1. Soak the chickpeas/chole in water for 6-7 hours.
  2. add water+salt+chickpeas in a cooker and cook for 15mins.
  3. remove the water from the chole and keep aside.
  4. heat oil in a pan or kadai/pan.
  5. fry the whole garam masala/spices mentioned above.
  6. add the paste and saute till the oil starts to leaves the sides of the paste.
  7. stir while sauting so that the paste does not stick to the pan.
  8. add turmeric, red chili powder, coriander and dry mango powder.
  9. pour water , salt stir and saute for a minute. add the cooked chole and stir.
  10. cover the pan for 10 – 15 mins
  11. add  garam masala powder.
  12. garnish chole with coriander leaves.
  13. serve chole with onion slices, lemon wedges along with bhatura.

For bhature make the dough from maida , salt , sugar , baking powder (1 tsp) and use curd instead of water. I made it using wheat flour instead of maida, and it tasted good.

Enjoy whole with hot Bhature
