Chole, a traditional Punjabi dish, is usually made using a lot of fat. But this easy to make recipe is lower in calories and is just as tasty. The oil does not contribute much flavour, it is the spices that create this dish. Instead of bhature (deep fried puris) serve it with Nutritious Garlic Naans, which are healthy, nourishing and just as tasty. It is important to soak the chick peas overnight to improve its digestibility and nutritive value by enhancing the protein, calcium and vitamin C levels.
