Chole Bhature

Swastik Refined Groundnut   is made from the finest mustard seeds found in the flourishing farms of Punjab. When I was thinking about a recipe today I thought, how about a dish that is loved by almost every Punjabi? Yes, I am talking about the beloved Chole Bhature! The spicy chole served with the fluffy Bhaturas are everyone’s favourite. So let’s learn how to make them.


For Chilla:

- One and a half cup of soaked Green Moong Dal.
- One and a half TSP of chopped green chillies.
- Twelve TSP of Swastik Double Filtered Groundnut oil.
- A pinch of Asafoetida (Hing), and salt as per your taste.

For Stuffing:

- Two cups of boiled potatoes cut in the shape of cubes.
- Three-quarters worth of boiled green peas in a cup.
- One tablespoon of cumin seeds (jeera).
- Half tablespoon of dried mango powder (amchur).
- Two tablespoons of chopped green chillies.
- One tablespoon of Swastik Double Filtered Groundnut oil.
And salt as per your taste.


- First of all, take the chole (chickpeas) and soak them in the water for a night.

- After that, in the morning take the chole (chickpeas) out of the water and pressure cook them for a while. After that take them out of the cooker and keep them aside.

- Next, take a pan and add Swastik Refined Groundnut Oil into it. Then add bay leaf, cinnamon, cumin seeds, whole peppercorns, cloves, green and black cardamom into that pan.

- When they turn brown in colour add the chopped onions in the pan. Wait for the onions to turn light brown, once they do add the chopped ginger and garlic.

- After that add turmeric, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, asafoetida and salt. Fry all these ingredients together well.
- Once that is done, add a little water to the pan and then add the chole (chickpeas) into it too.

- Stir it for a while and then add the chopped tomatoes and the salt in the chole.

-  After that add ajwain, chopped green chillies and water into it.
Once done, simmer the chole for an hour and then cover them.
Your chole’s are ready to be served!


- Take the Maida, Suji, Baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix them together.
Then add the yoghurt into the mixture and mix it well.

- After that add lukewarm water into the dough slowly and as required to make a good dough. Do not add all the water at once.

- After that apply a bit of Swastik Kachi Ghani Mustard Oil on the dough and cover it with a muslin cloth.

- After two-three hours, take the cloth off and divide the dough into 6-7 equal pieces.

- Then use a rolling pin to stretch each dough to make an oval shape.

- Take a pan and heat Swastik Refined Groundnut Oil into it. Once it is heated slide the Bhatura into the oil.

- Fry it till it is puffy and turns golden brown on both sides.

- Then take it out and serve it with the Chole!
