How to make Bikaneri Bhujia

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
  2. Shape the dough into a cylindrical roll, fill the dough into a Sev press and keep aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and press out thin strands from the sev press into the hot oil.
  4. Deep-fry the bhujia over a medium flame till they turn light brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper and keep aside to cool slightly.
