Sev/ Omapodi

Sev-A very versatile snack and garnish in Indian cooking.Any chaat/street food will have a generous sprinkle of this sev.Its so easy to be done at home that it would be a sin to buy it from the shops.



You can just chop some onions, tomatoes and cucumbers and add some sev,lime juice and chopped cilantro to go with it for a simple snack!


I have used sev as a garnish in some of my previous chaats here and here.



You need

Chick pea flour/besan 2 cups
Rice flour 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Chilli powder 1 tsp
Asoefetida a pinch
Water required to make a nice dough
Oil to deep fry

You would also need the press to make the sev use the smallest holes your press has.


  • Make a nice soft (not too dry dough because then it will be super hard to press out).
  • Heat the oil in a pan to deep fry, fill the dough and press the dough in circular motion directly into the oil.
  • Fry until golden brown.
  • Drain on a kitchen towel.


  • Store sev in a air tight container and this will remain fresh for more than a week.
  • Enjoy crunchy sev with tea or on your chaats and snacks.

Sending this to Fun Fair food
