Add 1 teaspoon chole powder + all dry masalas, then add chole channa with little left over water which was kept aside. Simmer till gravy is almost dry. Now in a bowl beat yogurt and 1 teaspoon of chole masala, salt, sugar/ jaggery, mix it well and pour it into the chole. Simmer it untill the gravy becomes thick. Then add 1 Tbsp of half -n-half. Remove from flame, now crush kasoori methi leaves with your palms and sprinkle it over the chole. Mix it well. Garnish it with lemon juice & chopped cilantro leaves.

    Divide puri dough into small balls about golf-ball size, and roll out into 4-6" rounds on an oiled board. Heat canola oil in a fryingwok or saucepan. Add a little salt to the oil to keep it from smoking. Fry the puri one at a time, holding them under the oil on the first side until they puff. Turn and fry till light brown; drain on a paper napkin to soak excess oil. Serve as soon as possible with chole or any prefered vegetable.
