Kacchi Dabeli


Kacchi Dabeli is street chat food available on every chat corners in India. It is most Indian famous and favorite chaat known. Dabeli is a mixture of boiled potato, pomegranate, onion, and peanuts, topped with red chutney( garlic chutney) sweet and sour chutney (date and tamarind ) and green chutney( mint and coriander) stuffed in buns (hamburgers) and toasted on flat tawa (skillet) with butter.

I made paav, all chutneys, and dabeli masala at home, you can get ready chutneys and dabeli masala from Indian stores. I used Raw banana instead of potato. I will give you measurement accordingly.

Will upload all the different types of masalas soon.

Ingredients(Buns, Laadi paav, hamburgers)

3 cup of maida (bread flour).( refined flour can be used)
1 packet of yeast( approx 2 1/4 tsp)( I used Fleischmann’s rapid rise instant yeast)
2 tsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp of salt
3 tablespoon of butter(butter for basting and baking)
1 1/2 cup of water.

  • Procedure
    Mix bread flour, instant yeast, sugar together add water and start kneading. Don’t add water at once, keep adding at intervals while kneading.
  • Keep kneading till the dough stop sticking to hands and feels soft.
  • When it is ready, apply butter on hands and dough to knead well.
  • Keep covered for rising, in dark place in a bowl double its size. It takes almost 1 to 2 hrs according to the temperature it is in.
  • When it doubles its size punch it and start kneading to make to normal size. Rub butter to your hands when you knead the dough.
  • Make 8 to 10 ball and place in baking tray keeping a distance and cover one more time to rise. It will rise in an hour or two.
  • Preheat oven to 425-degree Celsius and place tray in the oven until it gets a light brown coating on top( usually it happens in 10 to 12 mins), brush butter on buns and keep for more 2 to 3 mins. Keep monitoring or it gets brown soon.
    Remove when its golden brown.
