I Love the Chole- Bhatura combination, whereas it’s just the opposite for J. Hence I always prepare it when he’s away, travelling 🙂 The combination of Bhatura with Pindi Chole, sprinkled with chopped onions is my all-time favourite…yummmmm..I’m already drooling. I have always been following the recipe from my favourite cook book by Jiggs Kalra.

 

Though the dough can be prepared well in advance, it’s better to fry the Bhatura just before serving.
