Karasev recipe
        Kara sev is one my mom makes for every Diwali. My mom’s recipe is a bit different,she uses more of gram flour and lesser rice flour than I have used. I myself changed the ratio after I saw the results in ola pakoda. If we use rice flour more then we get the shade more in whiter side and also crispier snack. My hubby likes Kara sev,but am not a very big fan. So I made in small batch for him alone. Hope this will be helpful now, as many of you will be breaking your heads for what to make for Diwali.

Karasev recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Snack
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Makes: 2 Cups

Ingredients


Gram flour/kadala mavu  1 cup,heaped 
Rice flour  3/4 cup 
Asafoetida powder  1/4 tsp 
Turmeric powder  1/8 tsp 
Pepper , crushed coarsely  2 tsp 
Jeera /cumin seeds  1 tsp 
Butter,softened  2 tblsp 
Oil  For deep frying 
Salt  As needed 

Method

  1. Sieve gram flour if it has any lumps. Take both flours in a bowl,melt butter and add it to it. Add crushed pepper and jeera,salt,turmeric and asafoetida. Mix well.Add enough water to make a stiff dough.But there shouldn’t be any cracks. Make as a smooth dough.

  3. Take the murukku press with the same plate we use to make murukku. Fill the press with dough and press in hot oil in large circles. Do not make too many layers.Just two circles. Fry in medium flame on both sides till the bubbles and ‘shhhh’sounds ceases.

Notes
  • You can do the authentic way in which the dough is rubbed through a big laddle with holes. But I found it difficult as i had only a small laddle and I could not bear the heat, so this is the easier way. No big difference too.
  • Eat after a day to enjoy the pepper flavour fully.
  • Store in airtight container.

Drain in paper towel and break roughly into pieces. Store in air tight container. The pepper flavour incorporates well the next day. So start eating from the next day…
