Dabeli - Street food


Back home I had eaten Dabeli just once but tried it at a friends place recently and it brought back  memories so I thought I need to give it a try some day.

Surefed online to find a few recipes n came up with my own version of it. It was pretty simple to make as I had most ingredient easily available in my home kitchen itself.


Boiled potatoes
Dabeli Masala - I used Badshah Dabeli masala
Finely chopped onions
Spicy roasted peanuts
Pomegranate seeds
Grapes halved (Optional)
Tamarind and date chutney (I used the Deep tamarind and date chutney)
Garlic chutney (I used Deep garlic chutney)
Bhel sev ( I used garvi gujrat Bhel sev)
Finely chopped cilantro for garnish (Optional)
Pav bread


Mash boiled potatoes in a bowl. Now in a pan heat a little oil. To that add some finely chopped onions.Once the onions get translucent then add the mashed potatoes mix well. To this now add the date & tamarind chutney. Then add a hint of the garlic chutney. Mix well then transfer the mixture to a flat class bowl ( I used a pirex rectangle bowl with lid) Now flatten it in the bowl. Now sprinkle some spicy peanuts, pomegranate seeds , halved grapes, bhel sev & finely chopped cilantro.

Now cut pav & spread a little date n tamarind chutney on one side n some garlic chutney on the other. Now cut a slab of the potato mixture & place it in the pav. Top with some chopped onions & serve.

Homemade Mango Icecream

I love mangoes. I recently bought a can of Alphonso Mangoes from the store n decided I shud use it to make some Mango ice cream. Here's my version of a quick n simple recipe for yummy Mango Ice cream.

Quick n easy 4 ingredient Mango Ice cream recipe
2 cups + 2 Tbsp sweetened Mango Puree
1/2 cup condensed milk
2 cups or 1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 - 2 tbsp lime/Lemon juice

Chill all ingredients n mix together. Pour in an Ice cream maker. I use the Kitchen Aid Ice cream bowl attachment. Follow the instruction by the manufacturer. 

Once done set in a Freezer safe container. I used Pirex glass bowl with lids to store them in the freezer.
Lime/Lemon juice acts as a secret ingredient. It helps bring out the Mango flavor in it.

U can substitute Mango puree for any other fruit of ur choice.
