About Kutchi Dabeli Recipe

Dabeli is a spicy, tangy and potato filling inside a bun/pav – drizzled with a spicy and sweet chutney and some pomegranate, grapes, onions and sev. This reminds me of my hometown Gandhidham- kutch, where you will find dabeliwallas in every nook and corner selling these.
