Cooking up Smiles..Across the Miles

Kutchi Dabeli Recipe..Indian style burger..Another favorite street food.



In continuation with my love for Indian street food and Gujarati cuisine, I am making some Dabeli today. It is a delicious Indian street food that originated in Kutch, Gujarat. Spicy potato mixture is placed between Buns and topped with chutney, pomegranate seeds, peanuts and sev.

Dabeli is one of my favorite street food. I have such fond memories of my father treating me with this delicacy. When I moved out of India, I dearly missed eating all the street food, especially Dabeli. So I finally decided to try it at home, and I am so glad I did as its super easy if you have everything handy. Do give it a try and I am sure you will like it.

Lets make some delicious Dabeli…:P



For Dabeli masala – you can also use store bought – use 1.5 tbsp. or make your own as below

Whole Red chilly – 1

Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp

Corainder Seeds – 1 tsp

Cloves – 2

Black pepper – 4

Cinnamon Stick – 1/2 inch

For Potato stuffing:

Boiled and mashed potato – 1.5 cups

Oil – 1.5 tbsp.

Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp

Tamarind Chutney – 2 tbsp.

Salt to taste

Water – 1/2 cup

To Serve:

Buns or Pav – 4

Butter to toast the Pav – 2 tbsp

Roasted Peanuts – 1/4 cup

Sev – 1/4 cup

Pomegranate seeds – 1/4 cup

Chopped onions – 1 small

Sweet tamarind Chutney – 3 tbsp.

Red Chilly Garlic Chutney – 3 tbsp. (Can substitute this with mint & cilantro chutney)


  1. Lets start with making the Dabeli masala. Skip this step if you have the store bought masala readily available. Roast all the ingredients listed under Dabeli masala until fragrant and then grind to a fine powder. Use as in the recipe.
  2. To make the potato filling, heat oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds. Once the seeds crackle, add the potatoes, Dabeli masala, salt and tamarind chutney. Mix everything well.
  3. Now add 1/2 cup of water and let it come to a boil. Mix everything well and let it cook for a few minutes until the filling is like a thick paste.
  4. Slice the buns in half and toast them with butter till they are nice and crispy. I make my own buns using this amazing recipe at Shital’s Kitchen. Check it out here.
  5. To assemble, apply some tamarind chutney on one side of the bun and the garlic or mint chutney on the other bun.
  6. Take some potato filling and place it on one of the bun slices. Top it with some chopped onions, chopped cilantro leaves, peanuts, pomegranate seeds and sev. Close with the other Bun slice.
  7. Garnish with some more sev and chopped cilantro leaves. Enjoy


So that is how I made one of my favorite street food and relished some good old days. See how I have served it on a newspaper, just like they do in India 😉


Do give it a try and let me know if you like it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.


Ritu. 🙂

A few years ago I would have laughed at the prospect of writing a food blog. Expecting someone to guide you on a recipe whose own cooking experience before her marriage has been next to nil is quite unbelievable. A foodie husband and his love for socializing ensured I do get a lot of cooking practice. And when I finally decided to be a SAHM, it gave me an opportunity to enhance my culinary skills. A lot of it was inspired from a number of food groups on Facebook and some very talented people I met there. So thanks to all my family and friends who constantly motivated me to work on a blog, here it is. So come, join me on this delightful journey, where I promise to serve you Love daily, well almost.
