About Besan Sev Recipe

I make this every year on Holi as we have quite a few guests around. You can make loads in advance as the sev keeps well, stored in an airtight container.

How to make Besan Sev

  1. In a large bowl combine the besan, garlic paste, ajwain, salt, oil, red chilli powder and black pepper powder.
  2. Mix well and knead into a smooth dough, adding a little water at a time.
  3. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. It will be a little sticky.
  4. Take a sev press and oil it well.
  5. Make a cylinderical shape of the dough and gently place inside the press.
  6. Heat a kadhai/wok with oil till moderately hot.
  7. Press out the dough directly into the oil, a small batch at a time and fry till crisp.

My Tip:

Garlic lends this sev a special flavour, but you can omit it if you wish.
