Chole bhature (Hindi: छोले भटूरे, Punjabi: ਛੋਲੇ ਭਟੂਰੇ), is a dish from the Punjab region in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent. This Punjabi dish is a combination of chana masala (spicy white chickpeas) and bhatura, a fried bread made from maida flour (soft wheat).
Chole 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.
