Chole is a popular North Indian dish or a Punjabi delicacy famous all over the world.It is mostly served with Bhatura.If it is served as a breakfast,it will be a heavy breakfast and is mostly accompanied with a glass of Lassi. I prepared Chole bhatura for brunch this Sunday.I had this recipe in my folder which I had prepared long back,so I'm not sure whether its my own recipe or borrowed,but believe me it tastes awesome. Chole bhature has always been my childhood favourite dish.This dish can be savoured for lunch,evening snacks or even for the dinner.There are many versions to prepare this dish and I have tried many recipes like Amritsari chole,Punjabi chole,Pindi chole etc.This dish is indeed a Bhalle bhalle dish.
