Potato and Besan Sev

This is another type of Sev which is very popular with young and old alike. I have posted the recipe of the traditional way of making Sev too in this website which I normally prepare during Diwali. This year decided to make this one.

Ingredients :

3 potatoes pressure cooked

250 gms Besan/Chickpea flour

1/2 tsp Chilly powder

1/4 tsp Haldi/Turmeric powder

1/2 tsp pepper powder

1 tsp green chilly paste

Rajma/Kidney bean sized piece of Hing/Asafoetida powdered

1/4 tsp Soda bi carb


12 tsps oil

Oil for frying


Peel the potatoes and grate them. Drop in the Besan, chilly powder, Haldi, Hing, salt, pepper powder, green chilly paste, baking soda and oil. Mix thoroughly and prepare a soft dough. The oil itself is enough to bind the mixture together. Heat the oil in a pan. Once it is sufficiently hot, reduce flame. Grease the Sev press with oil. Take some dough and make it into a cylindrical roll. Put it in the Sev press. Secure the lid and press the dough into the hot oil. Fry till the Sev turns golden orange and crisp. Remove and drain on a kitchen towel. After it has cooled store in an air tight container.
