Notes

1 - In Chole Bhathure, you can add spices available at home instead of market spices. Doing so will give a different and flavorful taste to your chole bhature and you will also enjoy eating.
2 - When making chole bhature, you should take care not to mix the flour with too much cold water. Always use lukewarm water to knead the flour. Doing so will soften your flour and make it easier for you to make bhature.
3 - You can also use small gram, black gram or white chickpea gram as per your choice to make Chhole Bhathure. With this, those who like gram can consume the same and can double the taste of their chhole bhature.
