Dabeli Masala | Homemade Dabeli Masala Powder

Sharing is caring!

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!

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.

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

  1. 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

  2. I too liked the vada pav better. May be should try a hand at making dabeli myself…..

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