Friday Monsoon Magic -Dabeli

Incessant rains and frequent power cuts have kept me off blogging for the past week. Getting to work and back seemed like a big ordeal when rain Gods decided to visit us for 3-4 days continuously. The only positive aspect was the lovely rainy weather (which makes you creep under a blanket with a book in hand, music and some thing to nibble) encouraged me to try some spicy hot recipes.

Friday Monsoon Magic -Dabeli

Today, for my Friday -Monsoon Magicseries I have a recipe for Kutchi Dabeli or Double Roti. As the name suggests this recipe finds its origin in the Kutch region of Gujrat. But this has become a very popular street food here. You will find ‘Dabeli centres’ (carts) selling them on almost every street corner. The key flavor for Dabeli comes from its Masala-Dabeli Masala. I used the Masala, which one of my Kutchi friend has gifted me and which I use so carefully as if it were made of gold- its that precious.:) Dabeli Masala is readily available in most of the stores.
