The rumor around the ModCloth office was that Saad, one of our fantastic User Interface Designers, could make the tastiest dish in the world. Turns out that bit of gossip was totally true, and luckily for us, he’s sharing the secret!
Saad’s signature dish is chole, a mÃ©lange of tangy, sweet, and spicy flavors that work in perfect harmony. Chole (a.k.a. Chole masala or channa masala) is a type of ‘chaat,’ which means ‘mix’ in Hindi/Urdu. It’s typically a side-dish or a party dish, but it’s also a street food in Pakistan and India. Chole is great as a snack or a meal, and wonderful served over naan, or with yogurt over top. The tangy taste comes from the tamarind and amchur (dry mango powder) found in the chaat masala.
Saad said he learned to make chole from his mother, who “is probably the best cook in the world.” It was one of the first Indian or Pakistani dishes he learned to cook, because of its simplicity! Plus, it’s vegan, so everyone can enjoy it!
