Who would not want to try a chhole recipe ready in 15 minutes...the usual process of making chhole involves so much of time and effort that you have to think twice before cooking it..I tried this recipe for the first time for a potluck dinner with friends and it was loved by all.
I usually make it everytime there is a pooja or a festival as it goes well with puris and there is no onion and garlic in the recipe.
This is the famous chef Harpal Singh 's recipe of Kadhai Chhole.

Give it a try this festive season and I bet you will just love it !!


1 cup boiled Kabuli Chana/Chickpeas
2 slit Green chillies
1 chopped Tomato
1 tbsp of grated ginger
1 tbsp Chhole masala
1/2 tsp Dhaniya Powder
1/2 tsp Garma masala powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp amchur powder
2 tbsp ghee
1 tsp ajwain
2 tbsp refined oil
Coriander for garnish
Salt to taste


Take the boiled chickpeas in a bowl and add in all dry spices.Mix it well.Now add the chhole in a heavy bottomed wok.Add ginger,green chillies and chopped tomatoes.Let it cook for 5-7 minutes.Take ghee and oil in  another pan and let it heat.Add ajwain and let it splutter.Now take this ghee mixture and pour it on the chhole and cook it for another 5-6 minutes.
