Ingredients

To Boil
250 grams Chole (Chickpeas)

1 teabag ( this is used to give the black colour)
or
Amla 1 ( If you can find it then use it instead of tea bag, this has great nutrients and will give the dark colour as well)

4-6 Pieces Kali Ilaichi
Salt to taste
Black Salt 1 teaspoon ( use as desired or mix half of white salt and half of black salt)

3-4 Green Chillies - finely chopped
2-3 Tomatoes - finely chopped
1 piece Ginger - finely chopped
2-3 tsp Green Corriander - finely chopped
1 Onion - finely chopped
1/2 tsp Mangopowder (aamchur)
1 Tbsp Garam Masala
Red Chillies to taste
2 tsp dry Coriander Powder
100 gms Table spoon Ghee
2 pieces Bay Leaves


For Dry Spices ( Masala)
1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala
6 pieces Clove
1 piece Cinnammon
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp. Jeera
1 tsp Coriander seeds
2 tsp Anardana
Instructions:
1. Soak Chole (Chickpeas) in water to soak overnight.
2. Take a pressure cooker ( or use a normal vessel for boiling) and add Chole, tea bag,sal and Black Elaichi and add lots of water and boil for 10 minutes in the pressure cooker ( 30 minutes in a normal vessel). DO NOT OVERCOOK .If you overcook Chole it will end up like a starchy paste.
3. After cooking discard the teaback.
4. On a Tava or a frypan , roast all dry masala and make a rough powder out of that and keep aside.
5. In a separate pan heat oil and add bay leaves and then fry the onions till golden brown.
6. Add Garam Masala and tomotoes and fry and then add all the Chole ( keep the water seperately ) in the pan and mix well for 2 minutes.

7. Add the dry Masala which you have already roasted on a pan.
8. Add Amchur,Black Salt( if using) and ginger. ( We add it late to keep the flavour)
9. Add water in which you boiled the Chole earlier.
10. Let it bring to a boil and then let it simmer for 10 minutes.
11. Add the 2 tsp dry Coriander Powder.
11. If the curry looks too thick then add some water.
12. Mash some of the chole by pressing it with a spatula to give it a thick consitency like thick cream.
13. Garnish it with chopped coriander. Green chillies halves.
14. Red onions soaked in vinegar are an excellent accompaniment with Chole.


Add some ghee.

Serve it with Naan, Rice or Roti


TIPS : The chole which you eat in the shops have slightly blackish colour.


This can be achieved in many ways at home.

While boiling the choles add One Tea Bag
or
add a Anvla (AMLA) it will make the choles black.
or
Add 2 -3 drops of soya sauce while you finished the cooking( DO NOT add more than this otherwise the taste will be overshadowed with Soya Sauce flavour)

Tip:
While Preparing the dry masala which consists of the following ingredients. Roast them till they start getting burnt and turn black.

For Dry Spices ( Masala)
1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala
6 pieces Clove
1 piece Cinnammon
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp. Jeera
4 tsp Coriander seeds
2 tsp Anardana

Tip: Garnish it with Gigner Julienes , Green Coriander and sliced green chillies.

Anardana adds bit of a tangy flavour, you can avoid it. Some alternatives could be Amchur (Mango Powder) or add 2 tablespoons of yoghurt added while cooking

Coriander Powder is normally added at the end ( See Step 11) when most of the cooking is done to keep the flavour. It also thickens the curry.

Comment:
Thx! Sorry, 1 more question. The "2 tsp dry coriander" is ground coriander? Can I add it at the same time as the garam masala? Sorry for all the questoins - I''m just a begineer!

The Amchur, Black Salt and ginger can be added in step 7. Ghee can be added as garnish.

Thanks for the gret recipe. Just wondering when I should add the ginger, aamchur, tbsp garam masala (listed twice), dry coriander and ghee. Also, how much ghee should I use? Thanks.

To get the black color -- boil water with tea leaf let it cool and strain the water disgard tea leaf and use the tea water to soak the channa and boil in the same water also the dry masala helps.
