Heat oil in a vessel. Add 2 tbsp of finely onions. Fry till translucent and add ginger chili paste. Fry well. Add turmeric and cumin powder, coriander leaves and some salt as required. Mix well. Remove from fire and allow to cool
Once the potato mixture cools down, make balls, flatten them and shape them into tikkis
In a pan, shallow fry the tikkis on both sides till golden brown.
Place 2 tikkis on a plate. Pour generous amount of hot Chole on top. Add green chutney, date and tamarind chutney, some fine chopped onions, sprinkle some chaat masala, a pinch of cumin powder and red chili powder and lastly some sev.
Wash the mutton thoroughly and keep it aside. Heat oil in the pressure cooker and add in the mutton pieces.
Fry well till the water of the mutton is dried up and the raw smell goes. Meanwhile, roughly chop the onions and tomatoes, add them to the mixer jar along with all the ingredients from green chilies to garam masala powder and grind to a smooth paste.
Add this masala to the mutton with turmeric powder and salt.
Fry well till the masala is well incorporated to the mutton and oil starts to separate.
Finally add a cup of water and close the pressure cooker.
Cook for about 3 whistles on high flame and then for about 15 minutes on very low flame.
You can also cook this in an open vessel till the mutton is soft.
