Choley Bhature

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Choley is very famous in Punjab. Choley and Bhature are the great combination, which goes well for breakfast or lunch. Its a heavy food. Do not eat and drive!
I prepared this on my second daughter's birthday. It was a hit, every one liked it so much and the aroma of the Choley masala was everywhere in my area.I did not had time to prepare masala at home as the menu was for almost 50 people. I was not sure about the taste if I made the masala at home. 
Thanks to Kwality Choley Masala product. 
For Bhature, I took the recipe from Sailu.
Check her blog for the recipe.

For Choley:
I followed the recipe given on Kwality choley masala packet which goes like this:
Kabuli chana - 100gm
Onion - 2 chopped
Chilli Powder - 1 tso
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Kwality choley Masala - 1 tbsp
Tomato- 1 big, chopped
Green chillies - 2 slit
Ginger - 1/2", sliced
Salt to taste
Kasuri methi - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 3 tbsp
Soak the chana overnight.
Cook and keep aside in the morning.
Fry chopped onions till golden brown in a kadai in oil.
Add the coriander powder, chilli powder and Kwality Choley masala.
Fry for 3 minutes.
Add tomato, green chilli, ginger. Fry for few minutes.
Add boiled choley. 
Add salt and cook for 5 minutes. 
Add Kasurei methi and cook for 2 more minutes.
