Dabeli | Indian Potato Sliders

Dabeli is a very famous street food from North west Gujarat region called , Katch. Its a spicy street food m made with mashed potatoes stuffed in bun and served with chutneys and sev (thin Indian noodles), roasted peanuts  and pom seeds. Dabeli means pressed so here we are pressing potato mixture , chutneys inside the bun. If potatoes are boiled, sev is ready, masala is ready and then in no time you can make this. I wanted to try this since so long but my husband don't like potatoes that much and I was not interested to make it with any other ingredients. You can use sweet potatoes , yam, mogo, raw banana instead of potatoes but first I wanted to show you authentic way to make it. I didn't find pomegranate seeds so didn't add it but if you can find it then surely add it.

Ingredients :

6 boiled potatoes
1/2 chopped onion
1 tsp. Red Chili powder
1/2 tsp. Black pepper powder
4-5 green chilies chopped or as per taste
1 tbsp. Sesame seeds powder
1 tsp. Crushed  coriander seeds
2 tbsp. chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp. fennel seeds
1 tbsp. amchur
Lime juice as per taste
1 tsp. Garam masala
salt to taste
2 tbsp. oil

To serve :

8 -10 WW bun
1/4 cup Roasted peanuts ( I took sing bhujia)
1 onion finely chopped
1 cup or as needed thin sev
Garlic chutney
Date - tamarind chutney


Boiled the potatoes and grate / smashed it.
Take the peanuts and crushed it.
Take a pan, add oil in it. Add onion and cook it till its pink.
Add potatoes along with all the masala and 2 tbsp. of date and tamarind chutney.
Mix it very well and keep it aside.
Take bun, split it in half and toast it, you can add little oil in pan and shallow fry it too. But I just like it little warm.
Apply both the chutneys on each side.
then put potato mixture on top.
You can add pom seeds, sev, onion on top of a mixture or on the side.
You can roast bun with the filling inside or before filling also.
Enjoy as it is or if you want with ketchup.

Dont throw away leftovers, Made Batakavada from leftover masala - Not fried

Make small round of stuffing
Make Chickpea flour / besan batter.
dip it in and put it in paniyaram pan.

Enjoy hot bataka vada guilt free.
