Steps to prepare Punjabi Chole Masala Recipe

  • Soak chole or chickpeas overnight in a bowl.
  • Heat the pan and put oil. You can put even ghee/butter. I generally prefer oil and butter/ghee at last phase.
  • After heating the oil first you can fry all the vegetables and keep them aside.
  • Now it’s time for the soaked chole. You need to put them in pressure cooker for 5-6 whistles so than they can become soft. Here better to add small salt, so that some salt can enter inside chole pieces. Don’t over boil the choles.
  • Now again preheat a pan and put oil. In the oil first add the chopped garlic, chilies, and then onions and fry them till brown. After that add the boiled choles.
  • You can keep aside the water from the cooker which is used for chole boil, which we can use for gravy preparation.
  • Now keep the heat medium and stir the choles with onions and then stuffs properly so that they can be fried altogether. 
  • After that you add garlic paste, chopped tomato s and finally Everest chole masala. 
  • Need to add a bit salt also as per taste. Now stir them properly in a bit heating condition so that everything mixes properly. 
  • Next add the vegetables and the rest of water kept aside.
  • Need to cover the pan and keep it for 10 min in a slow heat so that masala and vegetables mixes properly. By the time we can feel the chole masala aroma spread everywhere in my kitchen.
  • After 10 min just need to add small sugar as per taste and butter to enhance the taste. That’s it for the preparation, just need to cook for 5 min more and it ready to eat.
  • You can then garnish it with tomato, coriander leaves or curry leaves as per your choice.
