Authentic Punjabi Chole

Authentic Punjabi Chole

I grew up eating amazing Gujarati food cooked by my mother. It was only until I was older that I was introduced to Punjabi food and that was usually at a restaurant. Punjabi food has literally taken over almost every single Indian restaurant menu! I married into a Punjabi family and needless to say the food is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Oh and not having to go out to a restaurant to eat it is a major plus. Did you know that real authentic chole will always be a dark color as opposed to a red tinged curry? Look out for the imposters! Thus far I have posted recipes for mostly non vegetarians but that’s all about to change. This Authentic Chole Recipe (Chickpea Curry) has been passed down for generations in my husbands family. I wish I could take credit for it but I cannot, it was all hubby who cooked this. My only addition was being his sous chef! I mean seriously what’s better for a relationship than a couple who cooks together? From my family to yours, we hope you enjoy this amazing chole recipe.

Tandoori Chicken Tzatziki Pita Pockets

Tandoori Chicken Tzatziki Pita Pockets

These Tandoori Chicken Tzatziki Pita Pockets are perfect for a quick weeknight meal or even lunch. I often whip these up ahead of time and assemble them at the last minute when I’m in a hurry. The Tzatziki will stay fresh in the fridge (in an airtight sealed container) for upwards of one week although in my house its usually gone in a few days. Grill a batch of the tandoori chicken a few days ahead, and it can re-purposed for other dishes as well as this one. Make ahead dishes are my favorite, time is very precious and unpredictable due to the baby, therefore make ahead meals are definitely a lifesaver when those hunger pangs hit. I find that the Tandoori Chicken and Tzatziki compliment each other very well, the cucumber and onion garnish give the dish a welcome freshness and sumac closes the dish out with a much-needed zing! Fusion food is amazing when it works so well together, just like Indian Chinese and in this case Indian Greek. I hope you guys enjoy it!
