well, to be honest, many have an assumption about dabeli recipe, that it is one of the complex recipes to be prepared at home. i would totally disagree to that assumption. i may agree to the point that it may one of the lengthiest recipe to prepare, but if you have all the things ready, you can assemble and serve within minutes. i am basically referring to the way the street vendors prepare and serve. they have the stuffing, chutney, sev and bread ready and they just assemble and roast it whenever they get an order. however, if you are preparing all the ingredients in a stretch, it can be overwhelming especially for beginners and novice cook. as an alternative, you may cook the stuffing overnight and start the others like peanut masala and assembling whenever you require it. this should certainly lower the complexity and also the achievability.
