Spinach Chole!

Hello, everyone

Today I have tried spinach chole. This is a healthy and filling dish. Chole is a famous punjabi cuisine but I also mixed spinach in that for the experiment. So let’s proceed to the recipe.

INGREDIENTES

Kabuli chana (white chickpea): 2 bowls (soaked overnight)

Onion: 1 medium sized (finely chopped)

Tomato: 2 medium sized (finely chopped)

Ginger-garlic paste: 1 teaspoon

Green chillies: 2 (chopped)

Spinach: 1 bowl (drained and chopped)

Cooking oil: 2 tablespoons

Cumin seeds: 1/4 teaspoon

Asafoetida: 1 pinch

Red chilli powder: 1/2 teaspoon

Garam masala powder: 1 teaspoon

Chole masala powder: 1.5 teaspoon (easily available in market)

Turmeric powder: 1/2 teaspoon

Coriander powder: 1 teaspoon

Salt: according to taste

Water: for cooking

Chopped coriander leaves: 1 tablespoon (for garnishing)

Lemon juice: 1/2 teaspoon (for serving)

RECIPE

  1. In a pressure cooker add overnight soaked kabuli chane (white chickpeas), 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder, and 4 bowls of water. Cover the lid and put the pressure cooker on medium flame and cook till 5 whistles.
  2. After 5 whistles turn off the flame.
  3. In parallel, put a pan on medium flame and heat oil according to the ingredients.
  4. Now add cumin seeds and asafoetida and let them splutter.
  5. Add chopped onion, green chillies, and ginger-garlic paste and saute them till they turn light brown.
  6. Now add chopped spinach and fry them for 2 minutes on simmer flame and add chopped tomatoes.
  7. Fry tomatoes and add red chilli powder, garam masala powder, chole masala powder, turmeric powder, and coriander powder and mix them well and cover it for 5 minutes on simmer flame.
  8. After 5 minutes open the cover. In parallel, open the lid of pressure cooker, drain water, and add cooked white chickpeas in spinach mixture.
  9. Mix them well and add salt according to your taste. (When you cook spinach, add less salt according to your taste because the spinach is salty itself.)
  10. Now add 1/2 bowl of water, mix well, and cover it. Cook on simmer flame for 10 minutes.
  11. After 10 minutes lightly mash the chickpeas and turn off the flame.
  12. Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.
  13. Spinach chole is ready!
  14. When you serve, add lemon juice.
