This ia a common snack used throughout India to go along with evening coffee/tea or in some places along with the lunch also. Preparation is very simple.


besan-250 gms,

Ajwain powder(ova)-12tsps,

chilli powder-2tsps,

turmeric powder-1/2tsp,

salt to taste and

oil for mixing with dough and frying.


Mix all the items along with 1 tbsp of oil and make a soft dough.

Heat oil in a pan for frying sevein.

Make sevein with the help of a sev machine and directly drop it in the hot oil, while pressing the machine.The quantity of sevein should be just enough to fry them easily in the pan, as well as rolling them over for proper frying.

Fry it, rolling them over once or twice, till you have them crispy.(A reasonable judgement of the readiness can be had on looking at the froth/foam floating on the oil. The near stoppage of frothing/foaming indicates the readiness of sevein for taking it out of the oil)

Repeat the process till the dough is exhausted

Remove the sevein from the oil, using a perforated laddle.

Once all the sevein is done and it gets cooled, store it in an airtight container.
