Achari Chole

   Vegetarian ,   September 30, 2015  2 Comments

I was bored of eating Chole the same way how I make , so while searching for something different I  got the recipe of Achari Chole Paneer by Farrukh , since I had very less paneer I decided to make only Achari Chole , and I must say that it was a different, unique & scrumptious recipe. Thanks Farrukh for such a wonderful recipe 🙂 . So if you are looking for a different way of eating Chole , I must say this is an ideal choice. I wanted to have Chole so I used only Chole , but you can go ahead and add lots of paneer to it.


Secret is I did added little paneer but since the quantity was very less I did not mention it 😛 . So no more talking and lets begin 🙂


  • 2 cups garbanzo beans(choley) soaked overnight & boiled till soft
  • 200 gms paneer/cottage cheese ( If you are using it ) cut into small cubes
  • ¼ cup yoghurt
  • 2tbsp, achaari masala ( Click here for the link of Achari Masala by Farrukh )
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 ½ tsp coriander powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Kashimiri red chilly powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ tsp fenugreek ( methi ) seeds
  • ½ tsp nigella seeds(kalaunji)
  • 3 green chili slit
  • 1 tsp kasuri methi(dried fenugreek leaves)
  • 4 tbsp Vegetable/mustard oil
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1/2 cups water
  • Juice of one lemon


  • In a heavy bottom pan  heat oil .
  • Add methi seeds and nigella seeds. Let it splutter.
  • Add bay leaf and onion. Fry onions till translucent.
  • Now add chopped tomatoes and grated ginger.
  • Cook till tomatoes are soft and mushy.
  • Add spices now turmeric powder, coriander powder and Kashimiri red chilly powder. Fry till the tomatoes starts oozing oil.
  • Now add boiled choley and whisked yoghurt, mix well. Add achaari masala and mix. let it cook for 5 min covering the lid.
  • Add ½ cup of water, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes
  • Add lemon juice & green chili slit, cook for 2-3 minutes ( Add paneer cubes here in this stage )
  • Finally add kasuri methi and mix.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and onion rings .
  • Serve hot with paratha, nan, phulka or pulao of your choice.

Note : You can add Paneer pieces to make ” Achari Paneer Chole ” the way farrukh made.


I hope you will try at home & enjoy this , Try your variations & do let me know how it was .
