How To Make Chole

Updated: Feb 21, 2021

Chole is a great Indian chickpea dish that is wonderful with bread like bathura or chapatti.

For 4 people


400g tin Chick Peas

4 Tbsp Vegetable oil

1 Tbsp Ginger paste

1 Tbsp Garlic Paste

1 Tbsp Ground Turmeric

1 Tbsp Coriander Powder

1 Tbsp Cumin Powder

1 Cinnamon stick

2 Bay leaves

1 Tbsp Garam Masala

1 Tbsp Green Chilli

Two finely chopped onions

3 large chopped fresh tomatoes

Sea salt (to taste)

Fresh coriander (a Few chopped leaves)

2 Teabags


Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan, at medium heat, add cinnamon stick, add onions and fry until golden brown and soft, add garlic and ginger paste, fry for a minute or two, add tomatoes and give a good stir and fry until mixed properly. Add chickpeas fry for 5 minutes, add water enough to cover the chickpeas. Add turmeric, coriander and cumin powder and two tea bags. (take out tea bags after a minute or so ) and cook over low heat until the sauce thickens. Add Garam Masala and season to taste.

Serve the chole (sprinkled with coriander, chopped green chilli and chopped onions - and maybe a little chaat masala) along with some tamarind sauce and yoghurt.
