    1. Chole with puri!

      Another one from my one pot one shot recipes, this one is without oil! This is just as simple as it can be, dump all the ingredients with chickpeas in pressure cooker and it’s ready.

      I made puri dough with whole wheat flour(just with normal water and salt) and kept in fridge by night and soaked the chickpeas (1 cup and 1/2 cup)

      Step 1: In pressure add washed/soaked chickpeas along with the below ingredients

      2 mediums thinly sliced onions

      1 large tomato thinly sliced

      1/4 Turmeric powder

      1 tsp coriander powder

      1 tsp red chilly powder

      1/2 tsp zeera powder (roasted)

      1 tsp ginger garlic paste

      2 teabags(you can avoid)

      3 tbspn oil (optional i haven’t added in my recipe)

      3/4 green chillies(adjust according to your intake)

      2 glass of water

      Cover the lid and cook for 5-6 whistles and then leave it for 5 mins in slow flame.

      Step 2: open the cooker let it cook for 2 more mins and stir gently, so the tomatoes and onions are nicely mashed forming a thick gravy. At this point add 1/4 tsp garam masala, salt, fresh coriander leaves and dry fenugreek leaves. Simmer for 2-3 minutes.

      Ready to serve, enjoy with puri or roti!
