Besan Sev Recipe, How to make sev

Author Fa's Kitchen


  • 2 cups besan / gram flour
  • 2 tbsp rice flour
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • a pinch of asefotida / hing
  • oil for frying


  • In a mixing bowl, add the besan, rice flour, salt, melted butter, red chili powder and hing. Add water little by little to form a soft dough. Neither too stiff nor too soft, just the chapati dough consistency.
  • Grease the sev maker with some oil and fill it with dough.
  • Heat oil in low medium heat and when it is heated, directly press the sev into the oil.
  • Fry on both sides till the bubbles disappear. It won't take long time for this sev to fry. Maybe a minute or two will be sufficient.
  • Cover the remaining dough till you finish frying the dough in the sev maker.
  • Crush the sev after frying with your hand. Allow it to cool and store in air tight container for a week.
