I - Ice Dabeli / Chilled Burger

Ice Dabeli is a chilled Indian burger which has a sweet and spicy taste . It is laced with whipped yogurt ,flavorful chutneys and has a amazing crunch of peanuts and pomegranates .

While Exploring the Falvors of Kutch Street Food  I heard of Ice Dabeli . The name intrigued me and I really wanted to know what was Ice Dabeli and why was it called so ?

Gandhidham is a small town in Kutch my cousins took me to Binarif , a famous Dabeli shop . I have spoken about this place earlier in my travel post to Kutch . Binarif is a crowded joint where they sell not only Dabeli but a variety of chats . I was keen to know about Ice Dabeli and asked the vendor to go slow while making it . The procedure to make Dabeli is same as Dabeli , but Ice Dabeli is topped with very chilled curd and chilled chutneys and hence the name Ice Dabeli ! This also reminds me of the Desi Burger Chat, which is another version of burger with curd.

Dabeli has a sweet, sour and spicy flavor and this flavor is further enhanced by the chilled curd and the chutneys . The sweet chutney and the garlic chutney make it so desirable . The nylon sev and the peanuts give it an awesome crunch . Pomegranate pearls subdue the hint of chilly that you feel from the garlic chutney and lastly it is garnished with rose petals . Heavenly ! Trust me while the Ice Dabeli was being made , I was drooling , I just couldn’t wait to bite in this big Indian chilled burger ! The first bite was like a total burst of flavors , seriously you have to experience this .

It is one rare street food so go ahead try it for yourself .
