ABOUT Kutchi Dabeli... RECIPE

Dabeli is basically a spicy, tangy and a sweet snack that is stuffed inside a pav- an Indian bun to be more specific. This is therefore exclusively an Indian snack that originated in Kutch. A very popular streetfood of Mumbai, it also is equally popular in Gujarat State. The secret ingredient in this one being the dabeli masala that is prepared at home afresh everytime by me. This tastes awesome when the masala is fresh. Enjoy this snack with your loved ones anytime you wish to have something super deliciously spicy and tangy. This will make for an ideal choice for sure.
