Dabeli Recipe

by TEAM SALEBHAI - 20-Mar-2018 - Recipes

Dabeli – a popular Indian street food – does not require any introduction. It is a spicy potato mixture coupled with onions, meethi chutney, masala peanuts, garlic chutney, and fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. Do you know that dabeli is a Gujarati term? The spicy snack originated in Kutch. It is usually served as an evening snack or during get togethers.

 

Dabeli can be prepared in a jiffy. It is a blessing when guests come over at your place. The dabeli stuffing can be made before and remains fresh for hours. The chutney used also has a good shelf life; so dabeli can be curated within a few minutes. Moreover, dabeli masala is readily available nowadays – which can give you the feel of homemade masala and save your time too. Isn’t it quick?
