aloo chole recipealoo chole recipe | aloo chole ki sabji | aloo chole ki recipe | alu chole with step by step photo and video recipe. chickpeas or potato-based curries are a very common and popular choice for day to day use. more commonly the recipes are either made with just one of them as a key ingredient in a spicy and tangy tomato and onion based sauce. yet there are other variations like aloo chole ki sabji where potato and chickpeas are used together to make a curry.

as i mentioned earlier, when it comes to north indian curries it is loaded with paneer based or meat-based curries. as a matter of fact, i am bored with the paneer based stereotype curries which you get it in punjabi restaurants. these days i search for mixed vegetables or a unique fusion curry. aloo chole ki sabji is one such fusion curry which has the goodness of both chickpeas and potatoes. the recipe has a similar texture and tanginess as compared the traditional chole recipe. yet with the introduction of diced potatoes, it adds a unique taste to the curry. i personally make this recipe for my night dinner and tastes divine with phulka or roti and mix it with rice and serve it for next day lunch boxes.

anyway, i would like to highlight some of my tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect spicy aloo chole ki sabji. firstly, in this recipe, i have used dry and overnight soaked chickpeas for this curry. the same recipe can be made with canned chickpeas which do not require additional soaking. secondly, the same recipe can be further extended to have more vegetables added to on top of chickpeas and potatoes. the ideal candidates for this are peas, carrots and broccoli. lastly, the gravy or the sauce tends to thicken as it rested. hence it recommended adjusting the consistency by adding water before reheating it.

finally, i request you to check my other curry recipes collection with this post of aloo chole recipe. it mainly includes recipes variations like aloo tamatar ki sabji, aloo shimla mirch ki sabji, potato curry for masala dosa, dum aloo, jeera aloo, kashmiri dum aloo, aloo methi, aloo gobi masala, aloo curry, aloo baingan. further, to these i would also like to highlight my other recipes collection like,
