Chole bhature is one of India’s most common street food dishes. The chole are the curried chickpeas/garbanzo beans that have a typical tang lent to them by tea leaves. The tannins in the tea are central to giving a sharp edge to this rich dish. The bhatura is a soft fried bread. At Mowgli, this vegan dish is extremely poplular and it works brilliantly with our puri breads.
