Chole Chicken (Chicken with Chickpeas)


Chole Chicken (Chicken with Chickpeas)

With a lot of cuisine, you may notice recipes that don’t really exist in the place they are supposed to be from. Example: In Germany, one of the most popular and common recipes in Indian restaurants is “Mango Chicken”. In Estonia, they serve “Honey Chicken”.

What I assumed to be a similar case, is “Chole Chicken”. But turns out it’s quite common in the northern part of India. It just happens that I never tried or came across it before 🙂

Hence this …

  • Heat some oil in a pan
  • Add some mustard seeds and let them pop
  • Add some broken red chillies
  • Add chopped ginger, garlic and onions
  • Saute for 10 min
  • Add broken bay leaves. coriander powder, turmeric powder
  • Add some garam masala and chicken masala
  • Saute for 2 min
  • Add chickpeas, chicken legs and tomato pieces
  • Add salt to taste
  • Mix well, add a cup of water
  • Cover and let it boil for 15-20 min

Voila!
