What is Dabeli?

Pav slit and stuffed with magic and cooked to make one of the most delectable Indian snacks is dabeli. One bite of it into your mouth and your mouth bursts with flavors. Okay it is something spicy, no it is tangy, and there is some sweetness too, what was that? That crunchy thing!! This will be your reaction when someone blindfolds you and makes you eat dabeli.

Dabeli is one of the best Indian snacks and this is the best recipe for it. Something so good calls for little preparation. Dabeli gets its heat from a few Indian spices which combine to make dabeli masala. It gets its bite from the roasted masala peanuts. A couple of chutney recipes are an integral part of dabeli recipe.

Dabeli can jazz up your tea time and if you love it the way I do, it can be a dinner recipe or lunch recipe too.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Dabeli Recipe:

Dabeli is a combination of a few recipes. It is a potato recipe as boiled potatoes form the base of the stuffing, the divine stuffing. Let’s have a look at the required ingredients:

Pav: Ladi pav is what I used for my dabeli. These were not very thick so stuffing them was easier.

Boiled potatoes: Boiled and mashed potatoes are combined with a couple of more ingredients to make the most delicious stuffing. The interesting part is that the regular Indian spices such as red chili powder, turmeric powder, etc are not added in the potato stuffing.

Dabeli masala: A handful of Indian spices are combined and they make the dabeli so flavorful and peppery.

Tamarind Date Chutney: No, this is not applied to the pav. It is added to the potato stuffing.

Roasted masala Peanuts: This is not optional. Not at all! Peanuts are mandatory for the dabeli recipe. You can use the readymade ones but these are just too perfect for the dabeli recipe.

Other ingredients: Few fresh ingredients such as coriander, onions, and pomegranate are used for the recipe. Red garlic chutney adds a nice flavor. And the final look is achieved with the help of nylon sev.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
