Samosa chole

Kailash Parbhat also has the best samosa chole in Bombay. Samosas are crispy turnovers stuffed with spicy potato and peas. Chole is made from chickpeas simmered in and onion and tomato curry with lots of Indian spices. Samosas are usually dipped in coriander chutney or tomato ketchup but chole makes an excellent and hearty accompaniment to make samosa chole a perfect mini lunch.

You can also make a yummy street food called samosa chaat using the samosa and chole by cutting the samosas into small pieces and then adding a bit of chole, some sev (puffed rice), raw onions, tomatoes, coriander, tamarind chutney, salt and lime juice. Yum!
