Bored of having chole with bhature? Here is a yummy variation, in a handy, easy-to-serve snack-style format.
A spicy and tangy chole preparation is placed inside a plain flour dough leavened with yeast, and baked in an oven. Somewhat like a chole stuffed bun, these Baked Chole Parcels have a fluffy texture with a scrumptious centre filling.
You must prepare the chole 1-3 hours in advance and allow it to cool before stuffing it into the dough, in order to get the right texture.
The Baked Chole Parcels are wonderful to serve as a snack with tea or as a starter at a party. Try other chole recipes like Chole Tikki Chaat and Pindi Chole Roll .
