Palak Paneer is known to everyone and is favourite for many because of its bursting flavours. Palak Chole is something similar to this, but little bit more masaledar. Instead of making just chole curry for poori next time, try this spinach flavoured Palak Chole recipe. I am sure you will love it.

First time I tried this dish in Sanjeev Kapoor’s Yellow Chilli restaurant. A nice roasted garlic taste in the gravy is what pulled me to this recipe.  Of course it is little bit time consuming as we have to pressure cook the chickpeas after soaking them over night.

The speciality of this recipe is that it calls for common ingredients unlike Chole masala which requires special masala powder and other spices. Of course both of them taste great and different. I am just explaining the complexity of this recipe.
