Chole and Peas Pulav (Without onions and garlic)

Check out peas pulav here...

Ingredients for Chole (Translation)

1 cup chick peas (soaked overnight and cooked)
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp chole masala
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp ginger paste
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp bengalgram flour
Finely chopped coriander leaves to garnish

Heat oil, add cumin seeds. Add the tomato puree, salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, chole masala and ginger paste and mix well.

Add the cooked chickpeas and water as much as you require for gravy.

Allow it to boil for five minutes. Make a thin paste of bengalgram flour and water and add it to the chole to get a thick gravy.

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Idea : If you forget to soak chick peas overnight, soak them in hot boiling water in a hotpack for about 4 hours. That would also do.
