Kara Sev | Diwali Savory Snacks

Sev are very popular and easy snacks not only restricted to Festival time but through out the year. There are innumerous flavours but this one is very basic which has red chilly powder, pepper powder and asafoetida. These are extremely addictive so should be watched while munching

1 cup Gram flour
1/2 cup Rice flour
2 tbsp melted Butter (hot)
2 tsp white Oil (hot)
1/2 tsp Jeera
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Pepper powder
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
1 tsp approx Salt or to your taste
1/4 cup Water (adjust to make a dough)
Oil for deep frying

Sieve the flours together twice and remove any lumps in a large bowl. Add hot melted butter and mix well til it gets crumb like texture. Add oil, jeera, turmeric, pepper, asafoetida, salt and mix well. 

Now add water slowly to make a soft dough like we knead for poori. Leave this dough for 10 minutes. In between heat enough oil in a deep frying oil and check the temperature of oil by dropping a pinch of dough into hot oil, if it floats back on top immediately then oil is ready.
Take the murukku press and pick the plate that has many holes in it. 

oil on the plate and inside the murukku machine, fill the machine with the dough and press the dough into the hot oil by rotating the handle of the machine clockwise. Move the maker in circular motion to avoid them sticking or overlapping together. Use fork if needed and fry til sev turns to a gold shade. Remove the first batch from oil and place on paper napkin. Repeat the process with the remaining dough. Roughly crush the sev to store them. After sev cools down, store in an air tight container.
