Chickpeas are a favorite in most Indian kitchens. Their hearty and versatile nature make them a sought after ingredient in vegetarian dishes. Chole is a chickpea-based dish and arguably one of the best dishes made by the North Indians. Often eaten during breakfast with deep fried bread and slivers of onion and pickles, it's a dish that could keep you going through the morning until a very late lunch. There are many delicious regional versions of this dish, but today's recipe today is more North Indian in nature.
I like to eat chole with white or jeera rice and a good serving of boondi raita (a sweet-salty yogurt-based salad with crunchy chickpea flour beads). But you could have it with rotis or bread and it would be just as delicious.
