Methi Chole !

If you are a regular follower of this blog, then by now you will know my obsession or chickpeas or chole. I keep trying different dishes with chickpeas and combine with each and everything I found in my pantry. This will be a very quick dish when you have boiled chole at home. It is rich in protein and other nutrients from methi too. Check out the other chickpea recipes in the blog

  • 2 cups boiled chole
  • 1 cup methi (tightly packed)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • 2 cloves
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 big onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • salt as needed
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • lemon wedges to serve

  • Soak chickpeas overnight and pressure cook them till they are cooked soft.
  • Heat oil in a kadai/pan, add jeera followed by ginger garlic paste and chopped onions.
  • Saute the onions till they are slightly brown and then add tomatoes and cook.

  • Add all the spice powders, salt and a splash of water and cook till oil leaves
  • Then add methi leaves and cook with the masala till the leaves cook and  reduce in volume.

  • Add boiled chole, toss well with the leaves and masala.
  • Add garammasala , close and cook for couple of minutes and turn stove.


  • This is a dry version , so I haven't added more water to the dish.
  • Adjust spices as per taste.
  • Squeeze lemon juice and serve with hot rotis/rice.
  • you can also replace methi with spinach and proceed with the dish.

With Love,
