Ingredients to make Sev

  • gram flour 2 cups
  • Black pepper 1 teaspoon
  • red chilli powder 2 tablespoon
  • turmeric powder 1 teaspoon
  • asafoetida 1/2 teaspoon
  • salt to taste
  • water 1/2 cup
  • oil 3 tablespoon
  • oil for frying
  • Carom seed crushed 1 tablespoon

How to make Sev

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together, besan carom seeds, red chili, black pepper, and asafetida. Add the oil and mix it well.
  2. Add the water slowly to make soft and smooth dough. Dough is very sticky, I used a spoon to mix the dough in the beginning. Then oil the palm and knead the dough. Cover the dough and allow to rest for about 15 minutes.
  3. Greased sev maker with attachment. Place enough dough to fill the cylinder of sev maker and close. On other side, heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat, frying pan should have about one inch of oil.
  4. Oil should be moderately hot, Note: when you place little piece of dough oil should sizzle and dough should come up slowly without changing color.
  5. Now hold the sev maker over frying pan, press the handle, sev will start coming out in to the oil. As sev is coming, slowly move the sev maker in circular motion.
  6. As you complete one circle stop. Fry both sides till they become light golden brown, and oil will stop sizzling. Sev is ready. Remove it using slotted spoon.
  7. Take them out over paper towel lined plate. And continue the same process for remaining dough.
  8. Let the sev cool completely, as it cools they will become crispy. Break sev lightly with your hand and sev is ready to serve

My Tip:

place little piece of dough oil should sizzle and dough should come up slowly without changing color.
