Dabeli | Kutchi Dabeli Recipe
Roll up your sleeves ladies we are making Kutchi Dabeli for dinner tonight! A delicious snack from Kutch, Gujarat that I have tasted so many times on Mumbai streets but never really enjoyed it. Till now! Now it’s my favourite chaat.
How I came about making Dabeli? Well, the other day as I was cleaning up my freezer I found a packet of dabeli masala. I am sure Vaishali had given it when we last met in Goa. I dumped it in my store all, yes the freezer and forgot about it.
Now I was expecting it to have long RIP when I found it, curiosity being my middle name I opened the packet and tasted it. Tasted good but then I needed a confirmation so my elder daughter who had walked in for water became my guinea pig. “Tastes good what is it? “ Do you need to ask what followed?
The main ingredients in making of a Dabeli are Pav or Bun Pav that is toasted, potato, tamarind and dates chutney, garlic chutney, pomegranate, roasted peanuts, sev, dhania/ coriander leaves. The whole taste is brought together by Dabeli masala.
Dabeli is adapted from here.
