Punjabi choley –A very delicious, spicy and popular chickpea curry cooked in tangy tomato sauce – specialty of Punjab(India)
Punjabi choley or Chana masala is one of the most popular dish from Punjab and Delhi, but loved all over the world. You can find it at every street and corner shop in Delhi.
There are so many recipes and versions of making this delicious and spicy chana masala. Today I am sharing my favorite recipe which is loved by me and my family,This is also a no onion no garlic recipe as always.You need to add a special blend of spice-chana masala to give a special touch and flavor to this dish.
I never brought ready made chana masala but prefer to make my own fresh masala,but you can use any good brand of ready made masala.
Punjabi choley are best enjoyed with naan, kulcha, bhature or with any fresh bread. Serve punjabi choley with fried green chilies,stir fried tomatoes, grated radish salad,pickle and fresh lemon wedges.
