Dabeli is Gujarats answer to vada pav. It is a sandwich-like snack in which bread is perked up with a sweet and spicy potato filling. Dabeli Bhajiya is an interesting variant of this favourite street food, wherein the potato packed bread is deep-fried to make crisp bhajiyas, and served with peppy chutneys. The dabeli stuffing is flavoured with a special dabeli masala, which gives it a unique taste, and we have also added some masala peanuts to add a bit of crunch to the filling. Remember to squeeze the moist bread slices well before adding the stuffing and shaping it, because it will absorb a lot of oil if it is watery.

Ingredients

Dabeli masala 2 Tablespoon
Masala peanuts 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Salt To Taste
Lemon juice 1 Teaspoon
Mashed potatoes 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Garlic chutney 1 Tablespoon

Chilli powder 1/2 Teaspoon
