Spiced Chickpeas (Chole) Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Wow. Fantastic. Served this with Curried Coconut Chicken from this website and the two were fantastic together!! (Not to mention a side of white rice and rainbow sherbet for dessert!!) Had my friend and her family over and everyone loved it--she even asked me for the recipe! My husband thought it was perfect. This will definitely be made over and over again! Thanks for the amazing share!! Oh, I didn't use either of the chiles--I'm not a huge fan. I did use some red pepper (about 1/2 tspn) which was just the right amount of kick for me. Otherwise, followed the recipe and everything was delicious!

I am going to try this again and hopefully give it 5 stars--totally my fault for not knowing the peppers being used but this was waaaay too spicy. I will use different ground red chilies (i used habanero) and maybe a smaller serrano pepper (the one I got from the grocery was quite large).

Very surprisingly delicious. I used store bought chhole masala & added ginger & tomatoes last and then pressure cooked more. Loved it because I did not expect much out the recipe :-).

This is great! I serve it over a bed of Romain lettuce to increase the amount of food per serving and reduce the calorie count.

It was good, as is, but when a friend suggested serving it with raita, oh yeah, that put it over the top! I happened to have some pre-made, but imagine in a pinch just some plain yogurt, mint and cucumber on the side would make this a 5 star dish.

This recipe was fabulous! I started the rice first, and it was ready about the same time I finished the chole. It's quite spicy, but even my 2 1/2 yr old liked it. I didn't have the cilantro or serranos, but it was still great. Don't skip the tomatoes and fresh ginger root! They cut the heavy spice and rounded out the flavors nicely.
