Kachi Dabeli

Kachi Dabeli is a very famous snack item in Maharashtra . Its comes 2nd to Vada Pao and before Pav Bhaji and I guess It’s a fusion of both. Extremely lip smacking item. I prepared them for Iftaari and we enjoyed a lot

Ingredients :

8-9 Pav/Bun
3-4 medium potatoes boiled, peeled and mashed
4-5 medium size onion chopped
1 pomegranet deseeded
2 tsp pav bhaji masala
1 tsp chaat masala
1/2 lemon juice
Tamarind Chutney
Green Chutney
Farsan(Nylon Seo)
Roasted Peanutes with Skin Removed
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste

Method to make Dabeli :

Heat 1 tsp oil.
Add 2 tsp onion chopped.
Add 2 tbsp tamarind Chutney
Add 2 tbsp green chutney
Add Pav Bhaji Masala
Add Chaat Masala and Lemon juice
Add boiled and mashed potatoes and salt to taste. Mix well and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Dabeli Masala is ready. Allow the mixture to cool. Mix some pomegranate seeds and roasted peanuts.
Add chopped coriander leaves.
Take a pav and sut into half. Apply Tamarind Chutney and Green Chutney on inner side of Pav.
Stuff some good amount of dabeli masala and put some Farsan above it. Put the other Pav above it.
Heat a tawa. Apply butter on both sides of Pav and gently heat on all sides. Gently press down with a spatula.
Serve Hot.
