This Chole is made out of white chickpeas which are soaked overnight to rehydrate before cooking them in a gravy made with onions, ginger garlic paste and tomatoes. What makes it special is the addition of a special blend of spices, known as the Chole masala which goes in apart from the usual basic spices used for Indian cooking. This is a family recipe used every week. It contains a special blend of spices which gives it a more authentic Punjabi touch. Little disclaimer that this dish might be a little spicy, you can tone down the meal by simply adding either cooking cream or coconut milk.

Hi I'm Anushree,
Food for me is synonymous with care, love and nourishment. Growing up in my home mum would tell us that always make enough food so that there is a little extra left. Cooking to me was always a creative outlet, a way to relax and especially because I love feeding people. It was something I did for fun. The content and satisfaction on a person's face after enjoying a meal is a priceless sight to behold!
