Tomatoes: 4 medium( grind to paste).

Everest chole masala: 3 table spoons

Water: 1 cup

Procedure:

Pressure cook over night soaked chick peas until 2 whistles.

They shouldn't be too mushy,but should be soft enough and crumble when you press.

Now take a deep pan and add oil and once the oil is heated add cumin seeds.

Once cumin splutter add onion paste,little salt,turmeric.

Once they get slightly brown add ginger garlic paste and fry until raw flavours are gone.

Add cumin powder,coriander powder,chole masala,red chilli powder and salt and let it fry for sometime.

Before all the spices burn add tomato paste and green chillies and let it cook until tomato paste is well cooked.

Once tomato paste is well cooked add pressure cooked  chole or chick peas and water and let it absorb all the tomato gravy.

Once all the chick peas absorb tomato gravy,add chaat masala and Kasuri methi powder and cook for 5 more minutes.

You can serve chole or chick peas curry with puri and little finely chopped  raw onions and coriander leaves on top.

Tastes so yumm😊😊
