fat free chhole for a breakfast
keeping in mind that a breakfast should be filling and nutritious.......chickpeas are a good idea.........as per my taste, i need a different breakfast everyday, so the concern always is that, my husband, also a variety freak , should like it and it should be easy n quick to make........this recipe comes to my rescue on weekends too when he likes to have puris for breakfast.........i serve him puris with this chhole and eat the chhole myself without the puris..........sometimes a sprinkling of chopped onions and bhujia is a great variation, specially if served as a snack.
a little preparation in the night helps a lot in the morning........
kabuli chana soaked overnight 2 cups
to be made into a green paste-
green coriander chopped 1 cup
green chillies 4
ginger 1 inch piece
garlic 5 cloves
lemon juice 2 tbsp
salt to taste
whole jeera 1 tsp
black pepper powder 1 tsp
peanuts roasted 1 tbsp
make the paste in the night when you go to soak the kabuli chana
in the morning just boil the chhole with salt n water till 2-3 whistles in a pressure cooker.
add the green paste to it and serve..........it can be served as it is, or like suggested above.
i like spicy food ....it gives me a filling satisfaction and keeps my metabolic rate high.........yummmyyy.
in the pic i have used tomatoes in the green paste instead of lemon juice...so the green color is not very prominent.
