Chilli Cholle (chick peas)

I luv to have cholle with paratha, puri or rice even though I can eat them with any other curry. Smiley

CHILLI CHOLLE..Sounds Intresting!! Is n’t it?? This time thought of making some different with chick peas. My co-sister always makes this recipe. The touch of sauces and spices makes it little different & more delicious. What she does when she boils cholle is make two dishes! Portion of it she makes curry & the other portion she makes chilli cholle specifically for kids & no doubt kids just loves this over curry.Smiley
 For a while I was also thinking to try this. Finally I prepared it & it came out really nice. Goes well with paratha, chapatti & rice too as a side dish…Smiley
