Kutchi Daabeli

Daabeli originated in the Kutch region of Guajarat. It is a salty, spicy, tangy, sweet snack. Aloo masala is stuffed inside the ladi pav, garnished with onion, coriander leaves, pomegrante seeds and sev. Buttered & roasted crispy on tawa top.

Dabeli will not be good in all shops. If you keep hunting, if you are lucky you will end up finding a good one. Most of the shops sell only the sweetest ones. So tried to prepare at home suiting to our taste with an equal ratio of the different tastes and flavour. sharing with you the recipe.
