The stuffing of boiled potatoes and masala is pressed between two buns hence it is called ‘Dabeli’ because Dabeli means ‘pressed’ in Gujarati language. Boiled potatoes are mashed with Dabeli masala, which is a mixture of several spices such as dried red-chillies, black-pepper powder, dried coconut, salt, clove, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, turmeric, elachi, , black-salt, Indian bay leaf (tej-patta) and other garam masalas. Kutchi Dabeli is most commonly served with dips/chutneys, which is prepared from tamarind, date, garlic, red chillies.
