Street food, we all love it and if I have to describe it in just two words, it would be “Super-Addictive”. I’m sure you would agree with that. I’m talking about Mumbai street food, which is known for its exclusivity, aroma, and after taste. Mumbai street food is very inviting and tantalizing with distinct culinary treasures brought by immigrants from all over the country. There are great options for snacks and meals that will blow your mind.
I will be taking you on a tour of Mumbai city, which includes delicious food joints which you may not have heard of. In this blog, I’m talking about a small food stall that serves some flavour some Dabelis. And believe me, it’s one of the best Dabelis. Mr Kaushik Joshi, a man serving dabeli since 14 years has immense fondness for his culture and food. Every day he makes a whopping 180-200 dabelis. Wow! He is truly passionate about his job of serving some Dabelis which according to me is absolutely praise worthy. So let’s move on and quickly get into other details.
About Dabeli: It originated in the Kutch region of Gujarat. It’s a hand snack with a burst of many flavours packed in one small pav. It’s grilled on a tawa, split open and stuffing made with spiced potato mixture or it’s also known as “Aloo kaPuran”, with an addition of special dabeli masala, putting the mixture in a pav, and served with sweet- tangy- spicy chutneys made from tamarind, date, garlic, red chillies, etc. It is garnished with pomegranate, onions, roasted peanuts and fresh chopped coriander.
