So good! The blend of spices is fantastic! We loved the addition of the lemon at the end, added a nice extra pop of flavor. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

This was excellent. I used it as a main dish over basmati rice and served it with tortilla and a veggi. It was a great meal. I added a can of tomatoes rather than the tasteless variety here at this time of year. Would make a good side dish for a meat dinner as well I think. Thanks Rita

Excellent mixture for curry, though I added about 1/2 teaspoon more of all the spices, especially ginger. The times and order of spice addition are all spot on, though, and the tomato sauce is how I like my Chole! One note: this could use with a sweet-sour kick -- perhaps add a tbs or two of lime juice?
