A delicious crispy gram flour noodle like snack
1 cup Gram flour
1 Tbsp Oil
1/8 Hing (asafoetida)
1/4 Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Saltor to taste
1/3 cup water
In a bowl take gram flour and all seasoning ingredients such as salt, turmeric powder, oil and hing. Mix well all dry ingredients.
Add water slowly and kneed the dough soft and smooth.
Prepare the sev machine by using ready made mold with smallest diameter for sev.
Put enough dough to fill the cylinder of sev maker and close it.
Heat the oil for frying the sev on the other side.
Once the oil is moderately hot, hold the sev maker over frying pan and rotate it clockwise so sev will start coming out into the oil..
As sev comes out move the sev maker in the circular motion, once you complete a circle stop. (Note: To stop the sev coming from sev maker rotate it anti clockwise)
Fry both sides till they become light golden brown, (Note: when the sev is done the oil will stop sizzling)
Take the sev on to the kitchen towel.The crispy sev is ready to eat.
You can store the sev in air tight container. It remains fresh atleast for a month.
My attempt at this recipe.I added unsalted roasted nuts and some raisins to the sev.
