Chole... spicy chick peas curry

Poori and chole .....wowwwwwwwwww... we love it. I love chick peas.. the way they look... cute I should say. I have had it with so many taste variations that I am not quite sure of the number. My mom makes it different, my mil makes a diff version and in my childhood I have had many tasty bowls of this spicy gravy at many many aunts place. Its a very often made menu in all get-togethers for the vegetarian crowd. They are loaded with protien, fiber and calcium too... so, a healthy food source.

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... With chapathis or pooris
