Besan Sev – Diwali Snack

Besan Sev – Diwali Snack

Besan Sev is a mild spiced, deep fried savory made during Diwali!

Besan Sev is nothing but gram flour sticks. It’s commonly known as kara sev and ghatiya in Gujarathi. These are great Diwali savories Or snacks also taste great with a cup of tea. I love this as since a child dipping in tea and eat with spoon. However when I made them today I really loved the more. It’s healthy, tasty and crispy plus make them how much you want.

Soon will try another version of this yum snack soon. As soon as I made I gulped quite a lot of them. Leaving little for my hubby …… These are made with basic ingredients found in your kitchen. Besan sev needs besan, rice flour, some spices and water. Quite easy to make only part to take care is not to burn your hand Or face while frying them.
