Chole Puri

Chole are made and eaten in different ways.They taste best with Bhatura's but this time I was in a hurry and prepared this quick version of chola with puri. But they tasted really yummy.
Friends I believe whenever we prepare anything in hurry that tastes the best. I am sure most of you will agree with me. So here goes the quick recipe.

Chickpeas (kabuli chana) - 1 Cup soaked overnight and cooked in pressure cooker along with salt and a pich of turmeric ( I used the ready made tin )
onion chopped - 1
tomato chopped - 1 large
whole garam masala - (1 clove, 2 pepper corns, 1 to 2 green cardamom, 1" cinnamon, 1 bay leaf)
ginger garlic paste - 1 tbs
chana masala - 1 tsp
red chilli powder - 1  to 2 tsp
garam masala powder - 1 tsp
turmeric - 1 tsp
dhaniya jeera powder - 2 tsp
curry leaves - 1 spring
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
coriander chopped - handful
oil - 2 tbs

Heat oil in a cooking vessel add onions along with ginger garlic paste stir fry them until onions are cooked add a bit of salt now add the chopped tomatoes along with some turmeric and some amount of chopped coriander cook until tomatoes turn soft and switch off the flame.Once cooled grind it to a paste.

Heat oil in a kadhai add whole garam masala along with cumin seeds and asafoetida once they splutter add curry leaves and the above paste mix it now add red chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala powder, chana masala, dhaniya jeera powder add a little warm water now add the chickpeas along with salt if required,cover and let it cook for sometime. Switch off the flame after 5 to 8 min. Garnish with loads of coriander. Enjoy with puri and raita.

P.S. Water can be added as per the requirement of the gravy.
