Bhature chole (Hindi: छोले भटूरे, Punjabi: ਛੋਲੇ ਭਟੂਰੇ), a dish from the Punjabi cuisine, is a combination of chana masala (spicy white chickpeas) and bhatura, a fried bread made from maida flour (soft wheat).[1]

Chole bhature is often eaten as a breakfast, sometimes accompanied with lassi, however it can also be a street food or a complete meal, and may be accompanied by, for example, onions, carrot pickle, green chutney and achaar.[2]
