Khara Sev Sabzi

Khara Sev Sabzi


Khara Sev is a South Indian Savoury, a good tea time snack, made with Besan and Rice flour, crushed pepper, sometimes a hint of garlic is added,  usually Khara Sev dough is pressed into hot oil using a  murukku press, fried to a golden colour.  Sometimes when we have     these savouries in abundance we have to use them in gravies or sabzi ‘s too. My mom sent me a big pack of Khara Sev. Some portion of it was sitting in  the store room, I had planned to make this sabzi. It came out well. Best served with paratha, puri, phulka and jeera rice.
