How to make palak pudina sev

  1. To prepare the palak phudina sev, keep the oil to heat in a kadhai or a deep non-stick pan. Meanwhile, Take a sevai machine, fit mold with thinnest hole and grease the sev "press" mould with little oil.
  2. Transfer the dough into the sev press.
  3. Press it properly.
  4. Cover it with the lid.
  5. Hold the sev press over pan, turn handle of machine and press out few thin strands into hot oil. As strands are starting to fall into the oil, slowly move machine in a circular motion to form a single layer. Multiple layers will yield uncooked sev.
  6. Deep-fry on a slow flame till it turns very light brown in colour from the bottom.
  7. Flip and fry on the other side.
  8. Flip and fry multiple times till the palak pudina sev is evenly cooked from all the sides. Do not cook once the bubbling sound stops, as it will just make the sev bitter on over frying.
  9. Carefully remove the sev with the help of a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper.
  10. Keep aside to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. If not cooled, the sev will be soft and not crispy.
  11. Transfer the sev into a deep bowl. Break the sev into pieces using your fingers.
