ShareThere is nothing that beats fresh ,home made snacks. Sev is one of them.A touch of garlic to the Sev gives it an amazing flavour.
  • Besan(chickpea flour)-2 1/2 cups
  • Rice flour-1/2cups
  • Ghee-1tbsp
  • Baking soda-2pinches
  • Red chilli powder-1tsp
  • Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
  • Crushed garlic-8flakes.
  • Salt-to taste
  • Oil-to deep fry
Mix the crushed garlic with  half a cup of water and strain.
Sieve both flours and salt together.
Mix ghee and baking soda.Cream well till white in colour.
Mix in the sieved flours.
Add the chilli powder,turmeric powder and the strained garlic water.
Add water and mix well to get a soft dough(mashed potatoes consistancy).
Heat the oil  in a kadhai  over moderate heat.
Fill the dough into a sev "press"
Holding the utensil over the hot oil, force the mixture through the holes.
As soon as noodles fall, slowly move the machine in a circular motion so that they do not stick together.
Fry both sides until crisp and lightly browned. Tip:When the sev is fried,the oil stops bubbling.
Remove and drain on a paper towel.
Fry the remaining paste in the same manner.
Cool and break into uniform pieces.
