Dabeli on Khari Toast


Dabeli Masala:

  • 3 dried red chillies
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 6-8 cloves
  • 3 star anise


Potato Topping:

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3-4 boiled and mashed potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Dabeli Masala (recipe above)
  • 1 tbsp tamarind chutney
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Del Monte Eggless Mayo
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt


Other ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Masala Peanuts
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup Nylon Sev
  • 8-10 Khari Toasts



  • For the Dabeli masala, dry roast all the ingredients in a pan over medium heat, about 4-5 minutes. Turn off the gas and let it cool completely. Add to a blender and grind until a fine powder is achieved.
  • Heat oil in a pan on low heat and saute turmeric powder for a few seconds. Add mashed potatoes, Dabeli masala, tamarind chutney, lemon juice, eggless mayo and salt with a few tablespoons of water to bring it all together. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until it has all come together and the mixture becomes slightly dry.
  • On a khari toast, add the potato topping, masala peanuts, pomegranate seeds, coriander leaves and sev and drizzle with Eggless Mayo.
