1.In case u don tea bags u can boil 2 tspn of tea leaves in a 2 cups of water and this water can be used while pressure cooking chickpeas. It tastes great!!! U can even this water for soaking chick peas. The purpose of tea bags is to give chole the dark color. don throw the water in which the choles were pressure cooked. add it to masalas to give it that special taste.
Used your recipe today. It was awesome! - 13 Oct 2012
I have tried many chole recipes and this came out to be the best. I did not use the tea (since it was only for the color). I added 1 & 1/2 teaspoon lime juice just before serving and it turned out tastier. - 28 Jul 2014
