Sev is a noodle type crispy snack made from gram flour. It is particularly used in many Indian food and snack preparations as main ingredient or garnishing agent. It can be prepared at home very easily. This recipe uses Sevai Machine to prepare it at home. This machine comes with many pre-fabricated molds to prepare sev of varying thickness. We recommend to use mold which prepares thinnest strands.

Like green chutney and khajur imli ki chutney, Sev is also an extremely important ingredient in the preparation of chaat items like Bhel, Sev Puri, etc. In fact, if you just top boiled sprouts or grated veggies with Sev, it gives the impression of a chaat item; that is how closely it is related to the chaat family! Interestingly, this ever popular savoury is made with minimal ingredients and a simple procedure, which you can easily master with just a little bit of practice.

Tips and Variations:

  • Adjust the quantity of red chilli powder according to your taste to make it more or less spicy.
  • Add palak and pudina puree while making dough to make a palak pudina sev.
  • Add boiled potato and crushed garlic while making dough for a nice flavor.
  • Use same amount of rice flour or both rice flour and gram flour instead of gram flour for variation.
