This chole masala is made by grinding together all onion, tomato, ginger, garlic, mint and coriander leaves along with green chillies. Has distinct flavour as it has mint and coriander leaves in it. Chole masala is one of my most favorite and Aj too is a big fan of chole bhature. He takes chole and puri for his lunch weekly once. I rarely make bhature coz of maida. But when my friend Sangeeta told about this chatpata chole her bhabi makes, I was really tempted to try. So tried making this for Aj’s Sunday brunch. We both loved it. I had it with phulkas and it was awesome. I tasted with bhatura too and obviously it tasted great. She sent me a picture in whatsapp and it was on greener side. But the ratio I added was bit different, so ended up with this coloured chole. So if you want on greener side, add more green chillies and reduce red chilli and chole masala. Instead of chole masala add little garam masala powder. It turns out really flavourful with mint and coriander leaves.

Goes well with bhatura the best or even with phulkas. Serve with chopped raw onions. The mint and coriander leaves we add makes it special and really flavourful.
