Chole bhature recipe | how to make pressure cooker chana bhature | instant chole bhature

Chole bhature is a popular north Indian dish made with chickpea curry and Indian flatbread bhature. In this recipe, I cooked chole in a pressure cooker to make the process easy and fasten. Also, I made instant aloo bhature made with 100% wheat flour.  It is very easy to make and love all kinds of age groups. So with a few basic ingredients try out restaurant-style Punjabi chole masala with instant aloo wheat flour bhature.
