Dabeli, kutchi dabeli or double roti (Gujarati: દાબેલી,કચ્છી દાબેલી, Devnagari: दाबेली,कच्छी दाबेली) is a popular snack food of India, originating in the Kutch or Kachchh region of Gujarat. It is a sweet snack made by mixing boiled potatoes with a special dabeli masala, putting the mixture in a ladi pav (burger bun), and serving it with chutneys made from tamarind, date, garlic, red chilies and other ingredients. It is garnished with pomegranate and roasted peanuts.
Dabeli literally means "pressed" in Gujarati language. The dish is said to have been created by Keshavji Gabha Chudasama (also known as Kesha Malam), a resident of Mandvi, Kutch, in the 1960s. When he started business he sold dabeli at the price of one anna or six paisa. His shop is still there in Mandvi, run by a later generation of his family. Today, dabeli masala made in the Kutch region are said to be most authentic. Bhuj and Nakhatrana towns of Kutch are also known for authentic dabeli apart from Mandvi.
Dabeli today is famous not only in Kutch and Gujarat but also throughout Maharashtra, parts of Telangana, Karnataka, Rajasthan and many other States of India. Dabeli stalls can be found in metropolitan cities like Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Nasik, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Nizamabad, Raipur, Bilaspur, Jabalpur, Indore, Bhopal, Udaipur, Jaipur, Aurangabad, etc. besides all major cities, towns and tourist spots of Gujarat.
