Kara Sev- ICC

11:31 Niloufer Riyaz 17 Comments

When Srivalli announced Kara Sev for this month's challenge I was very happy coz This is one of our fav snack n I prepare them now n them. Its very easy to make n not to say very delicios too.I usually make them in Murukku Achu, n the kara sevs are little thinner than we buy from the shop. This time I wanted to give a try with pressing them through the laddle. It was quite tough n they didnt look much like kara sev so I did my usual method of using the Murukku Achu. This goes to ICC

You need:

Besan flour                        2 1/2cup
Rice Flour                         1cup
Chilli powder                     1/2tsp
Coarsely ground pepper     1tsp
Ghee                                  2 1/2tsp
Cooking Soda                    a small pinch

Oil to fry


Seive the flours together, n add in the salt, cooking soda, chilli powder, pepper n ghee n mix together.
It will resemble bread crumbs.
Divide them in to four parts n Sprinlke enough water to form a soft dough.
Heat enough oil in frying pan . Take the Murukku Achu with the kara sev mould. Put a small ball of dough in the Achu n Press them down in hot oil.
Fry till they are well cooked n golden brown.
Break them in to pieces , Cool n Store them

Very crispy sev! I also used the muruku press instead of the ladle.

I see what you mean about the texture being different on the ladle-pressed ones, still look tasty, though!
