Chana Bhatura

I love this dish. Its a staple of Punjabis and in Delhi its even served for breakfast.

The surprising thing is that whenever I have eaten in Delhi, I’ve had it for breakfast, followed that with a glass of sweet lassi. Trust me – the glasses there are quite large (often I’ve not been able to finish off the lassi). The chana is served with bhatura / kulcha or puri. I love the kulchas and bhatura there. After such a meal, I always have said NO LUNCH. But come lunch time and I am ready to eat! Can’t do the same in Mumbai – dunno why.

Below is the snap I took of my chana-bhatura. Made it for dinner. Served and eaten Punjabi style – with sliced onions and green chili – yummmmm……….

This was my dinner tonight. I love Chole-Bathura. However, trying not to eat too much of fried food, instead of making bathura at home, I just ordered -in a butter naan. Give a Punjabi Chole with bathura, kulcha or then a naan; serve it with onions and raw green chilies and he will be very satisfied. I am! End to a good weekend.
