Croutons Chole Chaat

Chole is a popular side dish in Indian cuisine. It is usually served with roti, naan, rice or on fast food like samosa or bread.  A very popular way of having the chole in our household is on croutons. Serving the hot chole on crunchy croutons, topped with sweet and spicy chutney. potatoes and onions takes it to another level all together. What I like about this recipe is, people with allergies can also have this chaat using rice croutons( which tastes a whole lot better than regular croutons). It could be made in a jiffy with the store bought croutons. On the other hand  it could be prepared by toasting regular bread at home. In the home made crouton version, it gives you versatility to add herbs and spices to the bread as per ones tastes. So, the next time you have some left over chole convert it into a whole new chaat for a snack.
