Hi Kajal,
Thanks for editing.How abt ginger? Do we add ginger also? or only lahsun?
Will look forward to more step by step recipes.Love them.

Chitra said...

hi kajal,
thanks for editing the chole recipe..wanted to know if we need to add ginger pieces too.

Kajal said...

Hello Chitra,

Thank you dear for your comment. First think is if you like garlic(lahsun) then add in chole otherwise you add ginger.

Have a nice day dear.:)
