I keep on experimenting on different recipes ..you know adding, deleting ingredients or trying a new version all together..depending upon the ingredients I have and the kind of food we want to eat that particular day.

Last Friday I made Chole ..very simple no tantrum recipe. I made tikki along with it but this recipe will go well with Kulchas and bhaturas too. very flavorful yet light..good for a winter weekend at home.Will Post the Tikki recipe in next post..
