Dabeli is a popular street food. It is basically spicy potato mix placed in-between pav bread..  

This recipe is from Manjula’s kitchen.  I was really intrigued by the way the dabeli stuffing was cooked. Basically the potato is boiled and cooked in water along with dabeli masala, so that it comes to a paste consistency! Never knew potato could do that. This spicy potato paste is then placed in between roasted pav bread smeared with green/garlic and sweet chutney, and then topped with some sweet(pomegranate seeds) and spicy sev... yum yum..

Do try!

Bombay Saagu/Potato Saagu

Bombay Saagu/ Potato Saagu is a nice accompaniment for Set dosa, Rave idli or Poori/Chapathi. I like rave idli-bombay saagu-chutney combination very much and I make it a point to prepare this every time I make rave idli. 

This is my amma’s recipe. It is basically just cooked potato mixed in some besan(gram flour) based curry. I think the usage of besan as a thickening agent, just like jhunka(which is very much a North Karnataka/Maharashtra-ian dish), is the reason behind having “bombay” in its name. 

The procedure is very very easy and the taste is simply awesome.
