Chole Bhature recipe is an extremely popular Punjabi breakfast that is popular in many parts of India. It is a quite common dish that is available in almost every dhabas or restaurant in India. Chole Bhature is a heavy breakfast dish that’s why I always preferred Chole Bhature at lunch. Because I don’t like to have a fried breakfast.Mouthwatering-chole-bhature-recipe

Bhature is a fried fluffy flatbread that is served with thick Chole curry. Everyone has a different way to make Chole some people like it spicy or tangy flavored chole and some like mild-flavored chole but that depends on the person’s taste.





In the northern side of India, Chole Bhature also serves with lassi (buttermilk). Chole- Bhature goes great with onion salad, fried green chili and for making that dish tastier, then take some mango pickle along with onions and green chili. All those things complete the plate of Chole Bhature. Without those, I can’t imagine taking one bite of Chole Bhature.easy-recipe-of-chole-bhature

Notes:

  • If you don’t have time for resting the dough then you should knead it by adding dahi (curd) and baking soda. That will instantly make bhature soft and fluffy.
  • You should always soak Chole (Chickpeas) overnight or at least 8-9 hours. If you don’t have enough time, soak Chickpeas in hot water with baking soda and Salt for 30 minutes. And boil the Chickpeas for 3 whistles in pressure cooker instead of 1 whistle.
