How to assemble Mumbai roadside snack Dabeli

  1. Take a pav and cut it horizontally from the centre, but do not cut fully. Spread some geeli leshun ki chutney on the lower side of the pav. Here I have used the regular laadi pav. The dabeli pav used in kutch is a little round in shape.
  2. Spread some meethi chutney on the lower inner side of the slit pav.
  3. Spread some geeli leshun ki chutney and meethi chutney on the inside upper inner side of the slit pav.
  4. Then spread the prepared dabeli mixture over it.
  5. Press it with the back of a spoon or knife.
  6. Sprinkle chopped onions and masala peanuts over it.
  7. Sprinkle sev on the stuffing and press the pav. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make more dabelis.
  8. Just before serving melt some butter on a non- stick tava (griddle). Place the prepared dabelis over it, add some more butter and toast the dabeli on the hot tava (griddle).
  9. Turnover the dabelis and toast on the other side. You can decide how crisp you want them.
  10. Transfer the hot toasted dabeli on a plate. Then roll each dabeli over the sev, so as to cover it on the edges.


  11. Serve the dabeli hot. Dabeli lovers can try other deights like Dabeli cheese fondue and Dabeli bhajiya
