On the third day of the blogging marathon,I chose to do Indian street food.  Just those words make me drool !!!!!! I make sure to eat street foods as many times as I can with my brother,cousins and friends during my trips to India. For me dabeli will always be associated with my friend Sahil's home. I would ask his mom to make it for me everytime I visited his place and she would. After they left Hyderabad, I never got my fix of dabeli till my in-laws moved to Gujarat for 2 yrs and then again at my friend P's house here in the US. I just wish I had a better picture to show u guys.

2 potatoes, peeled,boiled and mashed
1 medium onion , chopped finely
1 tomato chopped
1/4 cup peanuts, sauted in oil ,red chilly pwd and a little corriander pwd
1 tsp sugar
1&1/4 tbsp dabeli masala (Store bought)
1 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
6-8 buns,
1/2 cup sev
1/2 cup pomegranate arils
1tsp lemon juice
salt to taste
tamarind chutney( store bought)
green chilly chutney (store bought)
  • Heat 1 tsp oil and 1 tbsp butter. Add chopped onion and saute till translucent.
  • Add chopped tomato, dabeli masala, sugar, salt and cook till tomatoes become a paste.
  • Add the mashed potato and mix well and fry for 3 mins. Add lemon juice mix well and switch off.
  • Take out onto a serving bowl/plate and let cool .
  • Add the peanuts, cilantro, sev and pomegranate arils.
  • Heat the bun a little. Add the tamarind chutney and green chilly chutney to the insides of the bun and spoon in the potato mixture.
  • Garnish with  peanuts,raw onion, sev and cilantro.
  • Enjoy!!!

      I bought dabeli masala from Indian store by mistake (don't remember what I was actually supposed to pick up), well when I got home, the container said, this is not garam masala and has to be used in dabeli only. I kept it to the side and haven't even opened the seal. So long story short--thanks a million for posting the recipe, I'll be making this pretty soon to try the masala.
      I'm so glad I signed up for the marathon, there are so many yummy dishes being cooked that I my bookmarks are growing like crazy.
