Leeks are a new discovery of mine. I only started using leeks in my cooking as recent as a couple of years ago. To me leeks were just another form of green onions so I didn’t bother with them much.

I looked up a few recipes and picked the easiest one to make which happens to be soup.

Chole, which is a North Indian chickpea dish from the Punjab region made of chickpeas cooked with onions, garlic and spices is one of the most popular dishes among Indians. Most if not all Indian restaurants have chole on their menu, it’s a staple dish in any Indian restaurant here in America. Most commonly chole is served with a side of batura (deep fried fermented flour tortillas) and a side condiment of raw onions which are put on top and eaten together. When I make chole it is always a treat at our home. Here is a recipe for one version of chole the way I usually make it.
