Dabeli - A college memory


Dabeli has always been the favorite street food.It reminds me the college days.Cool evenings breeze,a cup of hot coffee, chatpata gossips and a plate full of Dabeli was real treat!!
Here goes the recipe.( For recipes of Mint and Tamarind-Date chutney, refer the old posts on the same blog)

Preparation time : 30 minutes.
Serves 2 adults.

Ingredients:
  • 2 medium sized potatoes.
  • 4 spoons of cumin powder.
  • 5-6 spoons of black salt.
  • 1/3 cup of lemon juice.
  • 2 spoons of red chilly powder.
  • 1 cup of Honey Roasted Peanuts.
  • Very little oil.
  • Pav-bhaji bun - 6.
  • Finely chopped onions.
  • Finely chopped coriander.
  • Fine shev.
  • Salt to taste.

  • Potato stuffing
    Boil potatoes, mash and add cumin powder , black salt, lemon juice and red chilly powder with salt.

    Masala Peanuts

  • In a cup of honey roasted peanuts add 1 spoon of lemon juice, 2 drops of oil ,1 spoon of black salt and 1 spoon of red chilly powder.
  • Beat it as we beat egg so as to mix oil and lemon juice.3. Add peanuts to this mixture.

    The Real Showtime!!

  • Cut the bun in half. Don't reach till the end.
  • Apply mint and Tamarind-date chutney on both sides.
  • Place 1.5 spoon of potato stuffing on it.
  • Put some chopped onions and coriander.
  • Put masala peanuts.
  • Press and close the bun.
  • Heat little oil in the pan.Heat the bun side wise and keep pressing it well so that the stuffing doesn't come out.
  • Roll the hot sandwich in the bed of "shev". The shev sticks to the outer side of the bun and adds crispiness to it.

    Enjoy!!
