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.
