Diwali Special Recipe Sev Omapudi


1 1/4 cup chick pea flour/besan/senaga pindi

1 cup rice flour

1/2 tsp red chilli powder (optional)

1/2 tsp Carom seeds powder / vaamu/ajwain

1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds Powder

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder

salt to taste

2 tbsp hot ghee or oil

oil for deep frying


1) Mix all together rice flour, gram flour, salt, hot ghee or oil, chilli powder ,Cumin seeds powder,Carom seeds powder,turmeric and combine well.

2) Slowly add water little by little to make a soft dough, just soft enough that it is pressed through easily with the chakali press.

3) From chakali press replace the chakali attachment with sev attachment .

4) Adjust the dough for salt before deep-frying.

5) Heat a wide heavy bottomed pan with enough oil for deep frying. 

6) Take the sev press and fill with the dough .Once the oil is hot, reduce to medium flame and press the sev press in circular motion to make concentric layers of the sev dough. As you press the dough into the hot oil, you will find the oil froths up in bubbles which will eventually subside as the sev turns to a golden colour. Fry for a minute on medium heat to achieve that golden color and crispness.Don't over fry otherwise colour turns to brown.

7) When the sev turns a golden color, turn over to the other side and let it also cook to a golden colour. Use a slotted ladle to remove to an absorbent paper and cool. Crush gently with hands before storing.

8) Cool completely before storing in an air tight or metallic container.
