We can see it in the markets being sold at the grocery stores. We generally buy these snacks from the stores but what we don't know is that it can be easily prepared at home by deep frying the bite sized sev made out of gram flour dough.

A lot of spices are mixed to enhance the flavor further more. A pinch of soda bi carb will help in raising the flour to perfect consistency. To know how to make it, follow our recipe below.
