Serve nice and hot with rice or naan. This is one of my favorite Indian dishes.

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the cumin and ground red chilies, and cook for a few seconds until the spices are fragrant. Add the serrano chiles, onions, garbanzo beans, lemon juice, and water; season to taste with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with ginger, tomatoes, and cilantro to serve.

This recipe was fabulous! I started the rice first, and it was ready about the same time I finished the chole. It's quite spicy, but even my 2 1/2 yr old liked it. I didn't have the cilantro or serranos, but it was still great. Don't skip the tomatoes and fresh ginger root! They cut the heavy spice and rounded out the flavors nicely.

It was good, as is, but when a friend suggested serving it with raita, oh yeah, that put it over the top! I happened to have some pre-made, but imagine in a pinch just some plain yogurt, mint and cucumber on the side would make this a 5 star dish.

This is great! I serve it over a bed of Romain lettuce to increase the amount of food per serving and reduce the calorie count.
