besan sev

I made this on Holi, as my mom really loves it in fact anyone who tastes this once is bound to do so, it is simply fabulous with a cup of Tea/Coffee, and is very addictive! You can make loads in advance as this keeps well for weeks stored in an airtight container, have fun munching away…

  • Ingredients-
  • Gramflour(besan)-2 cups
  • Garlic paste- 1 tbsp
  • Ajwain- 1/2tsp
  • Salt –acc. to taste
  • Oil –2 tbsp
  • Red chilli powder-1/2 tsp
  • Black pepper powder-1/2 tsp
  • Refined oil for deep frying


Combine all the above and with the addition of water knead into a smooth dough, just be careful while adding water, add little at a time, or dough will be too sticky, use oiled hands and rest the dough awhile if it seems too sticky to handle. Next take a sev press which has these holes in the bottom and oil the press, make a cylinder of the dough and stuff into press, turn around while keeping a wok of hot oil ready, press out directly into oil, a small batch at a time and fry till crisp.Drain on paper towels.Repeat with rest of the dough.

Garlic paste adds a special flavor but can be omitted if you want something regular.A great way of serving this sev is with some chopped onion, tomatoes, coriander and lemon juice on top, yum!


This namkeen is off to SWC-Meals on wheels, as it can be stored without worrying about spoilage and is great while travelling.
