Chola Puri (Chola Poori)

Bhature (Chola Poori) is a very popular dish served anytime across India. Bhature is different from the regular poori in terms of the its size and the ingredients used. A typical poori at home is made using regular wheat flour, salt and water. But Bhature is made using Maida, ghee, curd and baking soda. The sheer size and puffed up look is what makes is endearing to everyone, especially children. Not surprisingly, this delicious dish is once again originated from the rich food lands of Punjab. Unlike a regular poori, the Bhature is served only with Channa Chole (a spicy dish made from chickpeas), a few rings of raw onion and a sliver of lemon and maybe a knob of butter (if you are truly eating it in Punjab).

Served as a breakfast item in some places, Chola Poori is a popular lunch or dinner option too. Typically served with Channa Chole (Punjabi Chole Masala), it is simple and easy to make.
