Street Food Recipes – Dabeli, Chowmein and more

Street Food Recipes
In this blog I’m sharing some street food recipes that are some of my favorites.

Check these street food recipes – Dabeli, Chowmein, Corn Bhel and Falooda. Click the video link below for detailed recipes.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Hope you saw the video for detailed street food recipes.

For me Dabeli is a very underrated street food. I feel it doesn’t get its due. I personally love Dabeli. A good butter Dabeli is unbeatable – delicious potato filling that has an amazing sweet and sour flavor; Pomegranate seeds that add a nice crunch and feel and buttery pav. With all of these whats not to like!

Street Food Recipes

On the contrary, Chowmein is something that I found overrated. But the more I made this one at home, the more I realized that a dish bursting with flavor can be so simple to put together. I still need to enjoy a lot more of the Delhi Chowmein, but in Mumbai I remember having one at Chowpatty which was exceptional. You can check that out in the video below.

Street Food Recipes

Corn Bhel is my take on a healthier version of Bhel. I have eaten it out in Mumbai, but I personally prefer the one I make at home. Again simple to make and very high on taste.

Street Food Recipes

Falooda is something that is perfect for Mumbai weather, that is perennially hot and humid. Its cooling, soothing and oh so delicious! In the video above, I have shared a lighter version of Falooda – less cream, no ice cream and yet so satisfying. Do try it if you are looking for a refreshing pick me up.

Make these delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies in a pan!

In this video, I’m sharing a recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies, made without¬† an oven. Watch the video to understand how I made these in a pan.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Im making these with chocolate but if you prefer plain ones, then skip the cocoa altogether. Either way your going to need peanut butter, Using about half a cup of it here. then we have a quarter cup of cocoa powder. a spoon of vanilla extract. a heaped table spoon of regular butter, one and half cup of whole wheat flour, half a cup of powdered sugar and a tea spoon of baking soda and 3/4th cup of milk. and here we have all the ingredients ready. you can even replace the whole wheat flour with maida here. so first throwing in the butter. and the sugar next. and mixing these two. it helps if the butter is a little softened already. And I’m using Amul butter. if you can then use unsalted or you can even use ghee. and now this is mixed and ill be adding the peanut butter in. And now mixing it as well. Once this is mixed in nicely im adding the¬† vanilla extract and mixing it well. And then goes in the flour and the cocoa powder. And also the baking soda and mix all these together. Then add milk and finally i go in with my hands and this is the dough here ready .¬†Then this goes in the fridge for about 20 minutes. and in the meantime, preheat the pan so this is a nonstick pan and im brushing it with oil and using a wrapping paper and lining it – you can use butter paper or parchment paper. And putting the lid of and letting this heat up on a low flame for about 15 minutes. Now the cookies can be rolled into these balls and flattened slightly. I’m not making these too big since i want them to get cooked evenly. and then we just place them in the pan. I’m also topping them with some chocolate chunks- this is just chopped up dark chocolate. These get ready in about 20-25 minutes.
