One of peshawar’s cultural contributions to this world is its luscious cuisine. Peshawari chole is a characteristic dish, very popular in punjab. Spicy and ‘chatpata’, this dish needs some prior planning as the chick peas require soaking for at least 6 hours.

Though spicy and chatpata the flavor of the kabuli chana is not lost as the proportions of the the masalas are just right and the tbsp of chaha dal adds thichness to the gravy.
