Shyavo or Sev (Crispy Gram flour Noodles)

Shyavo or Sev is a very simple snack. It is very easy to make and requires very few ingredients. It doesnot require any special preparation. Try making this and enjoy the goodness of fresh home made Sev!

  • Chickpea flour/Besan- 3/4 cup
  • Red chilli powder- To taste
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Asafoetida- 2-3 pinches
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil- For deep frying

Take all the ingredients except oil, in a bowl. Mix it well to remove the lumps (At this point you can add a tea spoon of hot oil to the flour mixture). Then with greased hands, adding little water at a time, make a stiff dough. 
Now the next step would be to grease the mould in which we are going to make the sev. I used this-

At the bottom of the mould we need to add the plate, which has many small holes throughout (I used the plate with slight bigger holes because I didn't have the one with smaller holes). 
Now put the dough into the mould and then start rotating it in clockwise direction in the hot oil directly, until there is enough room for the noodles to get fried evenly. To stop the noodles from coming, rotate in the opposite direction. 
Fry the noodles on a medium flame on either sides, until the sev turns slight brown. Take out the sev from the oil and drain the excess oil on a paper towel. Shyavo is ready!!

Allow it to cool and then store in an air tight container. You can as well break the long noodles into tiny bits and then use it for chaats or to serve it along with upma etc.
