Dabeli Recipe

Smeared in butter and grilled on griddle or tawa, it’s a popular breakfast item or evening beverage. Dabeli means’pressed’ in Kutchi(a Gujarati dialect). Steak filling is pressed between the local Pav bread. Indian Burger because it’s also popularly known has its characteristic taste which gets comes from the Dabeli Masala, a spicy Masala. It can be homemade or store-bought. I typically use the store-bought one. The other ingredients that give the attribute taste is crunchy masala peanuts juicy pomegranate seeds. The contrasting sweet and spicy taste comes from 2 chutneys, hot garlic and chilli chutney and tangy tamarind (and dates) chutney. Readymade Tamarind chutney can be available, at Indian Grocery shop.

Dabeli - Wikipedia

Dabeli has that genius mix of softness and crunch, sweetness and salt. Every seller include his own exceptional flavours into the dish, but by and large, a dabeli is made from buttered pao, grilled on a tawa, split open and stuffed with a spiced potato mixture, onions, pomegranates and sweet- sour – hot chutneys. My friend’s dabeli mixture was generously dunked in sweet and tamarind chutney, tinged with a smidgen of garlic and sprinkled with sev ganthia for the part of pinch. There’s dabeli served with lashings of coriander, dabeli with the addition of fine shavings of coconut, even dabeli with cheese, for anyone seeking to further augment their waistlines. There are nearly as many versions as there are sellers!
