Punjabi cuisine is widely popular and it can be non-vegetarian or even completely vegetarian. One of the main features of Punjabi cuisine is its diverse range of dishes. Most dairy products are abundantly used in Punjabi cuisine. My family particularly love the punjabi cuisine dishes using paneer as well as chole / chickpeas which can be cooked in many possible way. Starting from Chole Masala, Chole Chaat, Pindi Chole, Peshawari Chole to lots more one can surely enjoy.
Here the post is all about a dry dish using chickpeas as Punjabi Sukhe Chole / Chickpea Stir-fry. Along with roti / paratha or even with pulao, steamed rice-dal combo this can be perfectly fit. The process is quite simple and within few time the dish is prepared. The pressure cooked chickpeas are cooked with some dry spices, so the dish is quite dry type without any gravy.
The dish is completely vegan and gluten free too. And if you are in a hurry then you must try this punjabi sukhe chole. I love to have this dish with some hot phulka / roti, some sliced onions along with a glass of masala chhas.
