Pita Dabeli and Gyro Dabeli

How To Make Pita Dabeli / Gyro Dabeli
Hello Everybody,
        Pita Dabeli or gyro Dabeli is made by me as a fusion cuisine food recipe. Dabeli is a street food which originated in
Kutch. So today I tried to make it a different way, tried to use pita bread instead of buns. Dabeli is also called as kutchi dabeli or kachchhi dabeli, which is like a sandwich where the stuffing is spicy potato mixture with different chutneys, sev, peanuts and pomegranate, red chili and garlic chutney and sweet chutney. This is one of my most favorite food, it is so delicious, tangy, spicy, sweet i.e., it has a mixed taste and it tempts your taste buds. Try it.
