Kharachev- Spicy Sev

A savory snack-you can call it deep fried spicy noodles.In India everyone is a big fan of these sevs and mixtures of nuts and dried fruits.Its super easy to make these sevs.Makes a great teatime snack,a garnish or a festive goodie.
I first started making it because my daughter loves these fried stuff not to forget my dear better half too.What better way to feed them indian junk food and not feel guilty-I make them!
You would a metal murukku press, a tool to make these kind of chaklis and sevs.I have the one which has a rotating screw on top, I find it easier than the pressing types.

For the kharachev(tamil name for spicy-sev)

  • Besan/gram flour 1 cup
  • Rice flour 3/4 cup
  • Dalda 1 tablespoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Hing powder
  • Chilli powder 1/2tsp or as you need
  • water as required
  • Oil to deep fry
  1. Add the besan,rice flour,chilli powder,hing,salt and dalda in a broad bowl and mix it to make a not to tight dough.(the tighter the dough will be the harder it will be to press the dough out)
  2. Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes.
  3. Heat the oil in a kadai to deep fry.
  4. the murruku press has a variety of plates to select.You can choose your shapes.I selected the one for thick noodle like ones.
  5. Just press the dough into the oil into a broad disc of noodles and then once its fried and cooled you can break it into smaller bite sized pieces.
  6. Once the kharachev cools, serve it with hot Tea!
