Kacchi dabeli masala

When i think about street food in india one things comes to my mind that is paani puri or gol gappas.But few years one of my neighbour intruduced me to  this "Kacchi dabeli" it was awesome.I really started liking this more than bhel puri which was once upon a time was my favourite .Dabeli is nothing but a stuffed pav/burger with potato,ground nut , pomegranate and lots of shev with sweet and sour chutney.
  Today i am posting only the masala powder which is used in dabeli.Actually i  have prepared  this masala specially for some of my friends  who keep asking me about this masala.So thinking of preparing this weekend.

Jeera-1/4 cup
Saunf/fennel -1tbsp
Mace/javethri-2 small pieces
Cinnamon-6-7(1" pieces)
Red chillies(preferably kashmiri)-20

  • Dry roast all the ingredients till all the masala's are roasted well.
  • Let it cool for a while then ground to fine powder .
  • Store this in an air tight container
You can use this masala for any other dishes instead of garam masala and chilly powder.
