2 cups all-purpose flour (maida)
1 pouch yeast (optional)… non veg people can use an egg instead
1 /4cup yogurt
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp sugar
Take yeast and sugar and soak in lukewarm water for 5-10 minutes.
Take all the other ingredients and mix well.
To this, add the yeast and make a soft dough, like one would make for chappatis.
If need be, add a little water and keep aside for 4-5 hours. The longer kept, the better it is.
Roll like pooris but slightly thicker than regular pooris.
Fry like pooris till both sides are golden brown.

1 small can chole( kabuli. Chana)
1/2 tsp ginger paste
½ tsp garlic powder (optional)
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp coriander leaves
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 spoon chole masala (available in all super market)
½ tsp garam masala
1 medium-sized, finely chopped onion
1 big tomato
1½ cup water
salt to taste

Take 2 tbsp of oil in a pressure cooker and heat it.
Add garlic powder and make it dark brown.
Then add cumin seeds and fry till they start spluttering.
Now add diced onions. Fry then till they are light brown.
Now add the rest of the ingredients including water except the coriander leaves.
Close the pressure cooker and wait for 3 whistles or cook for 5-7 minutes.
Also, garnish with thinly sliced long pieces of onion and a lemon split into 4 pieces.
