Think jar snack and sev is one of the first options that comes to mind. Popular all over India, with mild variations, sev is a crispy, thread-shaped snack made of besan dough. It has a melt-in-the-mouth texture and enjoyable flavour.
While plain sev is not very spicy, Masala Sev is a variant in which a bit of tongue-tickling spiciness is introduced using red chilli powder and asafoetida.
Make sure you cook the sev on a slow flame, and do not fry till the colour darkens to golden brown. It should only be a yellowish or light brown shade. Store in an airtight container and enjoy with hot tea whenever you wish!

- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and knead into a semi stiff dough using enough water. Keep aside.
- Grease the sev "press" with the smallest holes with little oil, transfer the dough into it, press it properly and cover it with the lid.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, press out thin strands of the sev into the hot oil, a few at a time and deep-fry on a slow flame till it turns very light brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Repeat step 3 to deep-fry the remaining sev in 3 more batches.
- Keep aside to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Transfer the sev into a deep bowl and break into pieces using your fingers.
