To prepare the chhola, let the chola soak in water overnight. Next day, pressure cook with salt to taste and 1 packet of tea or put little tea leaves and wrap it in a cloth. This will change the color of chola to black.Now in a pan, add little oil and heat it over medium flame. Add jeera and kadi patta and then add 1/2 thinly sliced onion. Fry the onion till golden brown. Once the onion is sauteed, add minced garlic, ginger paste and onion paste. Fry till oil comes out. Then add tomato and tomato puree.
Once the oil has been seperated, add haldi, mirchi, dhaniya and chola masala. When masala is done, add chola and little water. Keep stirring in between. Check salt and allow it to cook for few minutes. Garnish the dish with chopped onion.
Now for making the bhaturas, combine maida and atta. Add salt and then add oil.
Mix the ingredients with hands, till you can make balls from the dough. Also add curd and mix very well. Add enough water to make atta dough. Put the dough in a plastic bag. Roll the bag to remove any air and tie it. Let it stand at least for 6 hours. (You can do it when you put chola in water, previous night).
Heat the oil in a deep pan over high flame and make big size poories (batura). Once the bhaturas are golden yellow, turn off the heat and transfer them along with the chhola in a serving bowl. Try this delicious recipe.
