How to Make Chickpeas Curry / Punjabi Chole in the Instant Pot
Hello Foodies,
         This delicious, spicy, and healthy Chole-Bhature, its Mumbai’s Street Food on a plate. So tasty, refreshing, and so easy to make. You really need simple basic pantry staples for this recipe; it’s vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. Perfectly cooked chickpeas with onion, tomato, ginger-garlic paste, and with some Indian spices, so yum. 

        These chickpeas curry is so good and easy to make using an instant pot, plus they are so healthy and delicious. I have been loving creating recipes with chickpeas and as much as I love these easy recipes for Instant Pot Hummus, or falafel or simple and gluten-free Soya-Chickpeas Tikkies. This recipe for Punjabi Chole or chickpeas curry served with Bhature is our favorite weekend brunch! It is so healthy, so fresh, and tastes absolutely incredible when served with hot bhaturas.
