Chole Tikki Chat

When outside is cold and you need some warmth, you need something to feed your body which is good for it. We have the same issues weather-wise and I was not in a mood to cook for any Indo Chinese or anything where I have to spend more time in the kitchen. Chat is my all-time favorite food, I can eat every day, in fact, I have frozen chutneys in my freezer so I can just take it out and eat it whenever I feel like it. It's been a while since the last time I made a chole chat. So I started to make that one.

Ingredients for Chole
3 cups boiled chickpeas
1 big onion finely chopped
1/4 cup tomato puree
3 tbsp chole masala ( I use Everest brand)
salt to taste
1 tsp jeera
1/4 cup soaked and dry Soya granules ( you can use chunks too)
3 tsp oil

To Garnish : 
Green chutney
Tamarind chutney
chopped onion, tomatoes and sev

3 boiled potatoes
small piece of ginger grated
1 green chili finely chopped
salt to taste
1 tbsp chat masala
3 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
2 tsp oil

Preparation for tikkis : 
Mashed potatoes and add everything in it.
make a small ball and shape it like Tikki and keep it aside.
Heat a nonstick pan and put tikkis in it, after 2 minutes spread tsp of oil on top of it and turn it over and cook till both sides are cook.
Keep it aside.
Heat a pan, add jeera in it. When changes its color, add onion in it and cook till it changes its color.
Then add chole masala and tomato puree and mix it well. cook till oil floats on top.
Add chickpeas, granules and mix it well.
Add 1 cup of water and put it on medium flame to cook it. Chickpeas has to absorb all the flavors so the lower the flame the more time chickpeas has to take the flavors.
You need gravy so don't wait till all the water is gone.
When ready to eat, put tikkis on the bowl, pour hot chole on top of it and add onion, tomatoes, both chutneys, a dollop of yogurt, sev and Enjoy.
