Spicy Sev

Ingredients

2 cups gram flour (besan)
1/2 tsp. ajwain (omam) seeds
1 1/2 tsp. red chilli powder
1 tbsp. oil
salt to taste
2-3 pinches asafoetida
water to make dough
oil to deep fry

Method


  • Mix the chilli, oil, salt and seeds into the flour.
  • Add enough water to make a dough which is quite gooey.
  • It should not be pliable but sticky.
  • Grease the inside of a Sev-press, fill with the dough.
  • Press into hot oil, and fry lightly on both sides.
  • Drain well and cool before storing.

Variation:
You may adjust the chillies as per taste.
You may omit chillies to make bland sev.
You may add finely crushed dried herbs (eg. mint) for add flavour.

Note: A sevpress is similar to a vermicelli press, but it should be small enough to handle over hot oil.
Making time: 15-20 minutes
Makes: 250 grams approx.
