the recipe of chole kulche is almost synonym to chole bhature which again hails from the same north indian cuisine. having said that matar ki chaat recipe is also similar to the famous bangalore chaat – masala puri recipe. in fact i find lot of similarities between these 2 recipes apart from the common white peas used in both recipes. both the recipes are served with freshly chopped onions and tomatoes as toppings with fine sev and chaat chutneys. but the spices added while preparing these curries are completely different and perhaps derives a totally different. in addition the masala puri is served with crushed puri as a base whereas chole kulche recipe does not contain it. lastly, matar kulcha can be easily served as both curry and chaat recipe with any choice of bread which makes it more versatile.
