Chole bhture (Hindi: छोले भटूरे) is a dish originated initially from eastern Uttar Pradesh in the northern part of the Indian Subcontinent. Now this dish is famous invariably in north while having huge following in Punjab. It is a combination of chana masala (spicy white chickpeas) and bhatura, a fried bread made from maida.[1]

Chhole bhature is often eaten as a breakfast dish, 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]
