Here's a recipe for Punjabi Chole (Chickpea Curry) using Roopak's Punjabi Cholee Masala:


  • 2 Cups dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans), soaked overnight and drained
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 Large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 Teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 2 Green chilies, slit lengthwise
  • 1 Tablespoon Roopak's Punjabi Cholee Masala
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 Teaspoon red chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker or a large pot over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add chopped onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and green chilies. Sauté for a minute until the raw smell disappears.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn mushy and the oil starts to separate.
  • Add Roopak's Punjabi Cholee Masala, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well and cook for a couple of minutes to roast the spices.
  • Add soaked and drained chickpeas to the pot. Stir well to coat the chickpeas with the spice mixture.
  • Pour enough water to cover the chickpeas. If using a pressure cooker, close the lid and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until the chickpeas are soft and tender. If using a pot, cover and cook on medium-low heat until the chickpeas are cooked through, stirring occasionally and adding more water if needed.
  • Once the chickpeas are cooked, mash some of them lightly to thicken the curry.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with rice, roti, or naan bread, along with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the curry.
