Aloo Chole

This weekend for cooking it has been regulars french beans, cabbage & eggplant. So I was browsing the web to try something different and ofcourse low fat and high protein. And I came across this recipe by Indira of Mahanandhi – Aloo chole. Thought would be perfect combination for the whole wheat tortiallas I had purchased last week.

I loved the idea of using pureed garbanzo beans to get the gravy instead of coconut or peanuts – I have no idea whether this is the way to do traditional aloo chole or not – but its a smart way and I think this is how I am going to thicken gravies in kormas hereafter – Low-fat thickener and a healthy dose of protein.

Anyways, I followed her recipe – Not the quantity of ingredients only the items. I added some extra chickpeas for the puree and omitted cilantro paste. And I did not have channa masala so used regular garam masala.

Indira has a cool description of the recipe. So I am not repeating it. But just a couple of fotos to show how it turned out 🙂 The taste was too good. I loved it so did Ravi.
