My earliest memories of Chole Bhature is of the one I ate at a popular eatery in Mumbai Known as "Cream Centre". On enquiring, I was told that the chick peas and spices were simmered together for hours resulting in a dish that a large number of Mumbaites relish even today! My version of chole is however, ready in minutes and is as delicious. I have also added tea leaves, which impart a dark brown colour to the chick peas which usually comes from simmering chick peas in an iron pot. I enjoy eating hot chole with tikkis, bhaturas, kulcha or simply topped on a slice of bread. Crisp, yet spongy bhaturas are used to mop up the chole. Traditionally bhatura dough was made using leavening agents like soda, curds and leaving it for hours to ferment before they could be rolled out and deep fried. This recipe of bhature is one that uses mashed potatoes to soften up the bhaturas. Moreover, also these bhaturas do not turn rubbery and chewy when they are eaten cold.
