Chole Saag

Chole Saag

Kristin Turrell

"This tastes exactly like the dish that I always get at my favorite Indian restaurant. I made it up one day and everyone was shocked. It has quite the mix of ingredients, but they all play a key role in getting the taste and consistency that I was looking for."

This was quite good. I did make some changes however, just because I have too when making a recipe that I am familiar with. First, I toasted the spices (cumin, cardamom, coriander, cloves) and t...

This recipe is tasty, however it did not taste like Chole Saag to me. I substituted coconut milk for yogurt and fresh spinach for frozen which I think made it more bright and fresh tasting.

I was looking for a chick pea recipe and found this. The chick peas I had were cooked, dried chick peas (not canned), and I didn't have canned sweet peas, so I microwaved frozen peas. I also s...

Amazing Recipe! One alteration I made was to replace the vegetable oil with olive oil, and combining that oil with the garlic, red pepper flakes, cumin, and curry in a Tupperware container, the...

This is an outstanding Indian recipe that I will be making very often. I served this with naan bread.
