Spicy Sev

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.

Spicy Sev

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.
