A quick pressure cooker Punjabi Chole recipe with detailed step-wise pictures. Best Chole recipe to make in 20 mins, perfect Chole Bhature recipe.
I made a super quick yet delicious version of Punjabi Chole in pressure cooker to go as side dish for my Bhature. Pindi Chole is a family favorite, however sometimes when you are pressed for time you are looking for a simple recipe that is still packed with lots of flavors. This pressure cooker chole recipe is just that. The prep work is minimal and you just throw everything into a pressure cooker, letting it do its magic. I made a similar recipe for my Kurma Kuzhambu, so this is a cross between that and the pindi chole recipe.
Kabuli Chana or Garbanzo beans are a great source of protein. This pressure cooker chole recipe uses kabuli chana and that’s what makes it really delicious. As much as I love black chana, for making Punjabi version of chole nothing better than the kabuli chana. It worked out perfectly well for the spongy, fluffy Bhature but it is as delicious with plan white rice, roti or poori. I even paired some leftovers with dosa too 🙂 So, here is how I made my quick chole –
