Theme: Recipes from Menu Card
Dish: Amritsari Chole
We are going to order some ‘Amritsari Chole’ from Puranmal restaurant. There are a ton of chickpea curry variations from the Punjab/ Haryana region and I’m sure each household has there own version of these curries. So when I saw Amritsari Chole on the menu, I wanted to see how different it was from the other chole recipes.
Amritsari chole is a very flavorful and delicious curry. I’ve never cooked chickpeas with tea leaves and this is one of the essential steps for this curry. The tea leaves make the chickpeas a deep dark color, but the taste of tea is not very prominent and doesn’t change the taste of the dish.
