Besan Ke Sev

Besan ke Sev is a tasty snack that goes well with the evening tea / coffee. And it is very easy and quick to make.



3 cups Besan / Gram Flour
1 tsp Ajwain, ground fine and sieved
1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


1. Knead all the above except oil to a very soft dough.

2. Heat oil for deep frying.

3. Put some dough into a Sev Maker and press the sev directly into the heated oil.

4. Deep fry till golden brown. Remove onto a paper towel to let it soak the extra oil.


• Sieving ensures that Ajwain doesn't have any pieces. These pieces will get stuck in the Sev Maker.

• You can add pureed spinach or garlic paste when kneading dough to make Palak Sev or Garlic Sev. Your can try any flavor you like. Just remember - no pieces that can get stuck in the sev maker.

• Sev Maker can be found in Indian Grocery stores.
