Dabeli is originally a street snack from Gujarat. It is a sweeter and fruiter version of Vada Pav.
I first got to taste dabali about 12 Years back in Mumbai at a very close relative’s place of mine. It tasted so yummy, mouthwatering and was filling snack too. Here goes my 300th recipe of making Dabeli and me celebrating my Blogs 1st Anniversary.
