#GoHereEatThis: Kutchi-Style Dabeli At Delite Chaat House

8515 Interested |


Say ‘Kemcho!’ to Delite Chaat House, in Indiranagar, that serves up Gujarati snacks and other quick bites. Their spice-packed dabeli is the dish that will get you in ‘majama’ spirits, we assure you.

Snack Time

At the far end of Indirangar’s restaurant-dotted 12th Main, Delite Chaat House is a small joint that sits right next to the Waffle House. The space, though not high on decor, is spic and span. At the counter, you’ll be shown a laminated menu offering Gujarati {to be precise Kutchi} snacks, and chaats as well as sandwiches and soft drinks. Basically street food super popular in Mumbai. 

We recommend that you concentrate the short selection of dabelis. And while the regular dabeli might sound dull and, well, regular — stick to that one. What you get is a butter-soaked pav that’s slightly crisp on the outside. When you take a bite, you get a hit of chilli from the spice coated, potato mash that nestles inside. The crunch of the sprinkled sev adds texture to the dish. Do dunk your dabeli into the sweet and the tangy chutneys that accompany the dish. They do a stellar job of cutting through the heat of the stuffing.

What Else Is On The Menu

The Dahi Khaman is also worth trying. For 50 bucks, you get a generous helping of soft dhokla bits covered in a tangy sauce and curd. This is a light eat and perfect for a quick bite when you are in the area. While we can’t vouch for the authenticity of the Gujarati dishes served here, they are palate pleasers for sure.

Apart from this, the place serves a wide variety of sandwiches. And we spotted quite a few customers biting into their grilled offerings. From no-frill bread, butter, jam versions to Malai Paneer and Mushroom Masala — there’s quite a bit you can choose from here. They do offer Vada Pav and Pav Bhaji as well but they sure don’t impress you like the dabeli.
