This Spicy Chole draws from the goodness of all the aromatic spices in your masala dabba. It is so sumptuous and rich, you will not even realize that it has no onions or potatoes in it! While bottle gourd contributes to the consistency of this special chole preparation, an intense powder of varied spices adds to its flavour. The pomegranate seeds, especially, contributes an appreciable tang and taste to the powder. Serve the Spicy Chole steaming hot with rice or rotis of your choice.

On tasting it its difficult to realise that it's a jain recipe and no onion and garlic is used. It's spicy and tangy. Tastes perfect with a roti or bhatura.
