Kara Sev recipe earlier which is quite different in taste from the Garlic Sev. Our family loves the flavour of Garlic and we used it extensively in our cooking and this Garlic Kara Sev is no exception. We love this garlic flavoured spicy sev very much and always carry back few packs of it during our trips to Bangalore.
If you have not tried garlic kara sev any time I highly recommend you to try this snack at least once, you will definitely love it and will also thank me for introducing you to this recipe. This is a very nice time pass snack to munch along with a cup of tea or coffee. When my mom visited us few months back I asked her to prepare this Garlic sev and I must say that it was so delicious and did not absorb much oil, it got over very quickly. Try this Garlic flavoured Kara sev during Diwali and share it with your loved ones and enjoy!!

Garlic Kara Sev Recipe:
Shelf life:15-20 days
Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 30 mins | Total time: 40 mins
Cuisine: Indian | Category: Snacks/Savouries
2 1/2 cups Bengal Gram flour (Besan)
1 cup Homemade Rice flour
2 tsp hot melted Ghee
2 tsp Red chili powder
Oil, for deep frying
5-6 small Garlic pods
Salt to taste (1.5 tsp roughly)
- Sieve besan and rice flour together.
- Make a well in between and then add strained garlic mixture, red chilli powder and hot melted ghee and mix it nicely until the mixture is mixed nicely. Divide the flour into 2-3 portions.
- Sprinkle enough water to each portion separately and make the dough just before frying. The dough should neither be very smooth nor very thick. It should be soft and smooth, the mixture will be slightly sticky.
- Use a 5 holed round disc(disc no:4 in the above pic ) of your murukku maker.
- Fry them over medium-high flame until they turn golden brown in color and the bubbles subsides in the oil and then turn to the other side and fry again until you get golden in color.
- Remove from oil using a perforated ladle and drain on a colander or kitchen napkin. Repeat the process of sprinkling water and kneading the dough and pressing into hot oil and frying with the remaining portions.
- Once it is cooled down to room temperature you can store it in dry air-tight container. You can store it like the swirls or slightly crumble them while storing.
Serve it as a snack with tea/coffee.
- Instead of red chili powder you can soak 8-10 red chillies in water for 10-15 mins and grind it along with garlic to a fine paste.
- You can even use 1 tsp pepper corns along with garlic pods while grinding and reduce the red chili powder to 1 tsp if you are using peppercorns.
- Use medium sized garlic pods, if you are using large garlic pods reduce them to 3-4 pods.
