1. Soak dry chickpeas for 4-5 hrs and then pressure cook it with salt and 1 tsp oil. You can add 1 tea bag while you pressure cook chole to get the nice brown colour. You can also use the chickpea can. I usually mash few chickpeas to make thick gravy.
2. Chop the Onion and garlic in a chopper.
3. When onion are lightly brown in around 5-6 minutes, add all remaining spices and tomato puree. Cook for few minutes until oil starts separating from the sauce.
