My today ‘s recipe is a part of famous northern India cuisine, ofcourse after chicken tikka , Butter chicken , Paneer tikka …etc:). But Chola masala is my special recipe with very less oil, it tastes better then the thick oily gravy masala you normally get in restaurants.
I am always ready to cook it for dinner or lunch, because no other side dishes are needed with this one. Ofcource after having one bhatura (deep fried bread) you won’t feel like having anything else. .
But what makes my curry special is the quick homemade Garam Masala, mixture of roasted spices. I don’t make fine powder, but just grind a little bit in my small stone grinder.
I also steamed chopped onion and tomatoes with the chickpeas instead of cooking it in oil, so you don’t need to make tomato puree or spend more time in cooking and mixing.
