For Lapetu chole:

In a pressure cooker, combine soaked chickpeas, water, the spice pouch, and salt. Pressure cook the mixture for 1 whistle on high flame, followed by 4-5 whistles on medium-low flame.

After cooking, strain the chickpeas, discard the spice pouch, and reserve the stock.

Transfer the chickpeas to a pan and season with salt, Kashmiri chilli powder, roasted chilli powder, amchur powder, chana masala powder, and ginger juliennes. Mix the spices thoroughly.

Heat ghee in a separate pan until hot, then pour it over the chickpea mixture. Add some of the reserved chickpea stock and mix well.

Cook the mixture on low flame for 2-3 minutes or until it gets dries, occasionally mashing some chickpeas with a spoon.

Finally, incorporate chopped coriander to the dish.
