Kara Sev~~IC Challenge

Our this month's Indian Cooking Challenge is the famous Kara Sev, its has been ages i had these crispies coz i dont have the laddle specially used for making this savoury snacks...Through this challenge, i was able to make some by using pastry bag with round nozzle, yea am managing myself with the kitchen gadgets i have rite now along with me..This challenge went completely really very prefect and easy coz this kara sev is one of the Indian snacks which is quite easy to prepare and this sev get ready in very less time and will definitely get vanished also with less time too...Already i have prepared twice these crispies at home and each time they get vanished quickly...I absolutely want to buy the special laddle for making this kara sev during my next trip to India, coz this sev are really worth to try...This challenge went for two types of making these crispies, i choosed the first method since its sounds exact as my mom do when i was kid..

Kara Sev

2+1/2cups Gram Flour 
1cup Rice flour 
1/2tsp Chilli powder
1tsp Black pepper coarsely powdered 
2+1/2tsp Ghee
1pinch Cooking soda 
2nos Garlic pods (crushed)
Salt 
Oil

Sieve both gram flour and rice flour together in a bowl,add chilli powder, pepper powder, salt, crushed garlic, ghee, cooking soda.
Mix thoroughly with hands. It should look like bread crumbs. Divide the dough into 4 portions.

Take a portion of this mixture, sprinkle water, knead as soft dough.Heat oil for deep frying in a kadai, use a kara sev ladle or Sev maker. Put some dough on that and rub directly into oil... Deep fry in oil , drain excess oil. Store this in an airtight container.

PS:If u are using pastry bag with round nozzle, just pipe them in a greased plate and gently drop them in hot oil..
