Matar Kulcha Recipe | Delhi-style White Chane Ke Chole Recipe | Kulcha Chole Recipe

Matar kulcha is a popular street food that hails from Delhi and is also famous in Amritsar. The kulcha chole is made with cooked white chana or white matar with a whole load of spices, onions and tomatoes. The white chane ke chole is served with hot kulchas in the streets of Delhi.

Kulcha chole is a spicy thick side dish with a dash of tamarind chutney to give it a tangy flavour, and the onions make it crunchy and delicious to eat. Since it is a thick and semi-solid dish, it can be eaten as a finger-licking chole chaat.

The matar kulcha is easy to prepare, since it is only about cooking the white chana and adding the Indian masalas. The white chane ke chole is generally served with kulchas in North India. The kulchas are usually found in ready-made packs and just need to be heated.

Below is a video recipe and the step-by-step procedure with images on how to prepare the delicious matar kulcha.
