CholaPuri with Channa Masala

My mother-in-law makes yummy cholapuri. Everytime she visits us I ask her to make this. This time I noted down the recipe finally. I also made a channa masala as a side dish for the puri. Forget your diets and enjoy this delectable combo of puri and channa

Ingredients to make Chola Puri

2 cups maida
1.5 cup Wheat Flour
2 tbsp rava
salt to taste
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup curds

Oil for frying

Mix everything and make it into a dough. Adjust the quantity of curds to get a soft dough. Heat oil in a frying pan. The oil should be hot so that puris become fluffy. Once it gets too hot after frying two three puris reduce the heat. We have to adjust the heat of the oil so that thepuri does not become brown.

Ingredients for making Channa Masala

2 onions
2 tomatoes
1/2 can diced tomato
2-3 green chili
4 garlic clove
1 can channa
1 tsp kasoori methi
1/2 tsp of sugar

Salt to taste


In a frying pan add garlic,ginger,green chili,onions and fry for few minutes. Add tomatoes and diced tomato to the pan. Once the mixture has become mushy blend it along with handful of channa.

In the frying pan add oil and add jeera and 2 cloves. Add the ground paste and remaning chana. Add chole masala, garam masala and salt. Let it simmer for few minutes. Add some kasoori methi and salt. Garnish with coriander
