Dabeli Masala | Homemade Dabeli Masala Powder

>>  Monday, April 29, 2013

When I was making Dabeli, I was odd for posting the entire post without the chutney or the Dabeli Masala. The first time I ever heard about Dabeli was from a blog. And it was the Dabeli Masala powder. It was it was by Sia, not sure. However the pictures were so captivating that I had to research on the chaat item further. 

Over the years I have read about many recipes, kutchi dabeli style recipes, bombay style and yes the recent Ahmedabad style as well. As I said I liked the Vada Pav better than Dabeli when I tasted for the first time in Ahmedabad. However when I made it myself, I loved my own version!

Check out the last but one in the one month long Blogging Marathon we have been doing!

Dabeli Masala

Homemade Dabeli Masala 

Whole dry Red chilli -  5- 6 long
Whole Kashmiri red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Whole Coriander seeds - 1 tbsp
Cinnamon - 1"
Cloves - 2
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp

How to make the Dabeli Masala

In a dry non stick pan, toss the whole spices till the aroma starts leaving. Remove and cool. Take all the ingredients in a mixer and pulse to a smooth powder.

Store in an air tight container to be used for making Dabeli.

Dabeli Masala Powder


The amount I got from the above measurement was enough for one time use. Increase if you want to make more and store.

i love dabelis but never thought of making this masala at home, this surely looks simple

When I made this some months ago, I made a larger quantity and lived adding it in place of our regular curry powder. However I did not add the chilli powder .I could also use your measures when I make this for ourselves alone

I love the clicks and it so simple and yet so elegant.
