Amritsari Chole with Paneer Kulche



Today is a holiday on account of Guru Nanak Dev Jee's Birthday and Kartik Purnima. A big and auspicious day for Indians. 
On a holiday everybody needs special instead of regular food. Therefore, I planned my holiday one day before and made this wonderful Punjabi Chole Kulche, in Amritsari style, today.  They came out very tasty and hubby & my children enjoyed a lot.
