Chole Puri

I like the big puri elegantly placed in the middle of the plate and added with chole, onion and a thin slice of lemon.Just squeeze the lemon, add onions and mix. Wow when we eat it with a piece of puri ,its mesmerizing..... When we were small, my dad used to take us to "Geetha cafe" in pondy bazaar.And their chole puri is awesome.I wud always wonder how to do . Now i came to know the secret after coming to dallas. I am happy to show u my secret.
