“Chole” is the Punjabi word for “chickpeas.” In this recipe, these tasty legumes serve as the base for a rich, authentic stew. We’re using nutritious greens and a classic array of spices, including garam masala, coriander, cumin and whole cardamom pods. But what makes this dish truly special is the dollop of creamy coconut yogurt. Not to be confused with coconut-flavored yogurt, coconut yogurt is dairy-free, made entirely from coconut milk. Its cool smoothness perfectly balances the spices.
