Dalia Chole Pulav | Broken Wheat Chickpeas Pulav

Once I had leftover chole and next day I added it in rice, it was good. So next time when I was thinking what to make for dinner,  thought of making chole for a quick dinner but was not interested to make paratha with it, needed one pot dish, so thought of making pulav with it, but already had that so thought lets try something new, took out my broken wheat bag , make chole masala, add dalia in it, one pressure cook whistle , patiently waited till cooker cools down. Then enjoyed it with simple tomato onion salad , which we called kachumber.

Ingredients : 

1 can chickpeas, washed 
1 cup broken wheat (dalia)
1 big onion chopped finely
2 big spoonful of tomato puree
1 chopped tomato
2 tbsp. chole masala
1 tbsp. red chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp. freshly made ginger, garlic paste
2 bay leaves
1 tsp Jeera
few black peppercorns
2 dry red chilies
salt to taste


Heat a Pressure cooker,
Add oil in it. Add Bay leaves, dry red chilies, black pepper corns. When its crackle, add jeera in it.
when its changes the color, add onion in it and cook till its pink.

Add tomato along with chole masala and cook it till nice aroma comes.
Add ginger, garlic paste, red chili powder, chole masala, turmeric powder and mix it.
Cook it for a minute. Add dalia and roast it for a minute.
Then add chana along with 3 cups water and add salt and mix it and cover the cooker.
Put the whistle on. On medium flame , cook it till one whistle and then cook on low flame for 10 minutes.
Shut off the gas and let it cool down the cooker.
Open it up and serve warm one pot meal along with simple onion-tomato slices or plain yogurt whatever you fancy.
