  1. The recipe in English says 2 tablespoons of chole masala, while in Marathi it is less (1 1/2 teaspoon). The chole came out really strong using Everest masala with 2 tbspn!

  2. I am very sorry for spoiling your chole. I am truly feeling bad. It was a mistake and I have corrected it.

  3. No worries - I'm sure it is hard to catch these things when making two sets of recipes for English and Marathi! Just wanted to point it out so that it got corrected.

  4. I made it for the first time and it was really awesome ..,, guests enjoyed chole ....thank you so much for the recipe :)
