I had prepared some sweet and savoury snacks for diwali and will be sharing some of those recipes. These sev are mine and sakshi’s favorite, loved the way they turned out. I would recommend the addition of garlic but if u could skip it as well.
Recipe Source: Sharmis Passion
Besan Flour 2 1/2 cups
Rice flour – cup
Black pepper 1 tsp
Ghee 2 1/2 tsp
Crushed garlic 2 cloves grated
Salt to taste
water not more than 1/4 cup
oil for frying
Grind pepper to a coarse powder.
In a bowl mix all the ingredients from besan to salt and mix nicely
Add little by little water and bring it togeather to form a dough, the douigh shouldnt be harder coz you wont be able to press the sev into oil then
The dough will be slightly sticky
Heat oil in a kadai
Fill the sev press with the dough and press the sev directly over oil.
Fry the sev on a medium flame and till it turns slightly dark in color
Drain on tissue paper and when cooled transfer them in container and munch on them.
Loved the mild taste of garlic but it is purely optional, you can give it a miss as well.
If you are preparing larger quantities, do not add water to the whole mixtuture, prepare the dough as and when and when required.
