Khara Sev

Its been quite a long since I started planing to post this recipe. This is one of the easiest recipes learnt from my mom but little time consuming. It doesnt matter if your are a snack lover :). If you have Khara Sev ready in your experimental zone, you can prepare lots of snacks whenever you want. But we tend to eat more, thats a different issue:). We can eat deep fried snacks once in a while I am I rite?. Give it a try. Have fun cooking. Sorry friends I couldnt take step by step photographs.

Preparation time: 1 hr
Yield: Approx 10 cups

  • 3/4 kg Gram flour/Kadale Hittu / Besan 
  • Generous pinch of Hing
  • 1 tsp Red Chili powder(to taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
  • Chakli maker with Sev plate(plate with small holes).

  • Take all the ingredients except oil in a bowl. Mix well. Then make a soft dough by adding little by little water. Make sure there are no lumps. The dough should be slightly softer than the Chapati dough. 
  • In the mean while heat the Oil in a pan. 
  • Fill the dough into chakli  maker then press directly in to the hot oil. Cook  both the sides in medium heat. You can use either plate with small holes or plate with slightly bigger holes.
  • Now the Sev is ready.

Note: You can add crushed cumins and turmeric powder to the dough if you like.
