This one-pot recipe for the authentic Channa Masala /CHOLE /CHICKPEAS can be made in the Instant Pot or stovetop Pressure Cooker. Chole Masala
Chole with bhatura is a popular combo but my daughter prefers with Jeera rice. Chole Masala is such a delicious and healthy dish. Chickpeas take very long to cook, hence they are perfect for pressure cooking.
1 cup chickpeas(soaked in water overnight)
4 tbsp Mustard Oil or any cooking oil
2 Bay Leaves
3-4 Green Cardamom
1 big Cardamom
