A classic combination of Puri Chole where we have a Bitter Gourd Peel Puri served along with Chana made with Palak & Kala Chana. Make it a complete meal, by serving it along with Pickled Onions, Aam Ras & Chaas.
Lastly, Kala Chana is also rich in calcium and iron. The vitamin C in kala chana helps improve the absorption of iron in the blood giving your body the nutrition it needs.
Did you know, Kala Chana is rich in fibre and can greatly contribute to weight loss. Unlike carbohydrates, fiber can’t be broken down and absorbed by your digestive system. Instead it helps slow down digestion, it moves through your body and helps in easy passage of stool. This helps in reducing cholesterol levels and in turn the risk of heart disease. In can even help keep diabetes under control.
Spinach on the other hand helps improving blood glucose control in diabetics, lowering the risk of cancer, lowering blood pressure, improving bone health, lowering the risk of developing asthma and more. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, and vitamin C. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, protein, and choline.
A Puri that is different from the usual, this Bitter Gourd Peel Puri is made a tad bit healthy by adding the peel of bitter gourds into the dough, that we would otherwise simply discard.
When combined with spices, this puri tastes great.

A delicious side dish that can be eaten as is, this Aamras recipe is absolutely lip smacking. Although it tastes good as it is, in many parts of India it is best eaten with Puri, which is a classic combination.
Aamras tastes best when made with a few varieties like alphonso, kesar, raspuri, besides it will taste great made with any local variety of mango as well.
