Yipeee it’s almost time for this weeks #fridaycurryclub and we are going to be making one of my favourites - Chole Bhatura!
This is a tangy chickpeas dish cooked in a tea then placed in a spicy masala laced with tamarind.
The bhatura is a leaved bread that is super soft and goes hand in hand with these spiced chickpeas.
It’s the ultimate brunch dish served with sliced chillies and sliced red onion and I will show you how!
