Katchi Dabeli

'Katchi Dabeli' …..One more street food…….I think it's originally a Gujarat state's dish but got vey famous in Maharashtra.  It's a type of sandwich. Khatta mitha and very tasty. When we were in Pune , we used to eat it like anything.  But after becoming Bangalorean   it has become difficult to have one dabeli on any street in the rainy eve.  One of my friend Ruchi who used to stay in Pune in her college days wanted to  have Dabeli……so after loooooooong planning we met yesterday and enjoyed homemade Dabeli.  In Pune we used to get  Special Amul butter and cheese dabeli. So I tried making such type of Dabeli and it was yum.  I used readymade 'Siddhi' Dabeli masala. But I have masala recipe which one of my friend had given. I'm sharing that recipe for those who don't get readymade one. For Bangalore people… can get  Dabeli Masala in Total Mall.

Pav - 10
Boiled and Mashed Potatoes - 2 cups
Dabeli Masala - 3 tablespoons
Salted Peanuts - 1/2 cup
Pomegranates - 1/3 cups
Finely chopped onion - 1/4 cup
Chopped fresh coriander - 2-3 tablespoon
Oil- 1 tablespoon
Amul Butter - 100 gms.
Amul Cheese cube - 2
Sev  - 1/2 cup
Imli ki chutney - 1/2 Cup
Pudina Chutney - 2-3 tablespoon

Dabeli Masal
Coriander seeds - 2 tablespoons
Cumin Seeds - 2 tablespoons
Fennel seeds - 1 tablespoon
Cloves- 7-8
Cinnamon  - 1 inch
Dry red chilli - 5-6
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Amchur powder - 2 tablespoons
Ginger powder- 1/2 tablespoon
Salt as per taste


For Masala
Dry roast corianderseeds, Cumin seeds, Feneel seeds, cloves, cinnamon, red chillies one by one in nonstick pan.  Let it get cool.  Now grind to a fine powder including all other ingredients.  Dabeli Masala is ready to use. Store it in a airtight container.

For Filling
Heat oil in kadai. Now add Dabeli Masala into it. Sauté for few seconds. Now add mashed potatoes and a teaspoon of imli ki chutney. Mix it properly and after minute or so take out of the flame.  Now spread  this mixture in a rectangular dish and top it with roasted peanuts then pomegranates then sev then chopped onion then chopped coriander.

Preparing  Dabeli
Slit one pav just like we do for pav bhaji or vada pav. Now put imli ki chutney on one side and pudina chutney on other side. Now put a spoonful potato filling  with  the topping.  Now close it with the upper portion of the pav. Deep three sides of pav in sev. Mean while heat a fry  pan. Put 1/2 teaspoon butter on it and roast Dabeli from both side with butter till it gets  golden brown color. Press Dabeli while roasting it. Garma Garam Dabeli is ready to serve.  Serve with a grated cheese on top of it. If you like you can add grated cheese in the feeling too.

This recipe reminded me of my college days. There was a street food vendor outside my college in Bombay who made dabeli and did some break dancing moves while serving it. He was very well known and was also featured in one of the newspapers.

Your dabeli recipe looks very appetizing and I hope to try it very soon.
