BM # 6 Day 2
If you are fmiliar with Delhi street food you must be aware of those mouthwatering Chole-Kulche.Kulchas are a basic white bread baked,soft to the core and makes a good substitute for a roti.These are normally served with two types of cholas.The cycle wale chole and the pateele wale chole.I am sure you guys must be wondering what is cycle wale...well the vendor ties a teen(a metal container) ka dabba behind his cycle ..and goes around selling cholas...but more on that later....coming to today’s recipe pateele wale chole.These are white peas soaked and cooked till mushy......served from a big brass pot and hence the name pateele..... garnished with spices ,onions,made a little tangy......n served with kulcha.
I have taken the same chole kulche and transformed them into a roll to suit our theme of Picnic Foods.
Here goes the recipe....
2cups......boiled white peas
1...............onion finely chopped
1.............. boiled potato finely chopped(optional)
1...............tomato finely chopped(optional)
2...............green chillies finely chopped
Ginger julline cut
Black chaat masala(or any other chaat masala)
Red chilly pwd
Soak the peas for 3-4 hours.
Pressure cook with salt for two whistles or till done.(be careful! This does not require too much cooking)
Drain off the excess water if any.(use it for your daals or gravy)
Add all the ingredients according to your taste...make sure this is not too bland as the kulchas are absolutely bland.
4 kulchas / roti
These are readymade bought from any local bakery shop.
Roll the kulchas with a rolling pin ,making the bread thin.
Place some cholas in the centre.
Roll up the kulcha.
rolled kulchas...check the thickness
