Omapodi-plain-sev
            This is my family favorite snack,so made today as Deepavali snack! This is for my own reference and hope helps out who wants to try it out at home. This is so easy if you make the dough consistency right. You can choose the size of the sev / Oma podi as your need - super fine or medium fine. Both ways its delicious and kids would love this very much. We can use this same sev for chaat recipes too!
