Chole Bhature : Post 18

Chole bhature is my second most favorite food in the whole world... ofcourse nothing can beat kadhi-chawal, but I like this one too a lot but everything about this one qualifies as sinful... fully sinful so its made very very rarely at our household... The chole is made pretty often and I have been thinking of posting them for a long time but somehow chole without the bhature seemed incomplete, so last sunday the sin was done when guests were over, so this post had to be this Friday... it couldn't wait any longer ;-)
