  • a pinch of turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp oil

  • Oil for deep frying

Instructions
 

PREPARATION OF SEV DOUGH:

  • Sieve besan with rice flour, salt, soda bicarbonate and turmeric powder into a mixing bowl.
  • Add oil and water.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix it into a thick paste. Don't be tempted to add more water, the dough should be sticky but not soft.
  • Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

PREPARATION OF MUMRA:

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C.
  • Add 1 tbsp oil to the mamra. Add salt and turmeric powder.
  • Mix well till the mamra is coated with the turmeric powder.
  • Tip the mamra into a large baking tray.
  • Let the mamra roast for 20-30 minutes till they are crunchy.

PREPARATION OF SEV:

  • Heat oil in a wok or karai over medium heat.
  • Using wet hands, take the dough and shape it into a thick roll.
  • Put it into the sev machine or press.
  • Fill the machine with the dough.
  • Press the sev over the hot oil in a circular motion.  Don't press too much of the dough out. Do this in small batches so that the sev can get fried properly.
  • Flip the circular sev and fry till the oil stops sizzling and the sev is slightly pinkish in colour
  • Remove from the oil using a slotted spoon or jara.
  • Repeat till the dough is over.

PREPARATION OF SEV MUMRA:

  • Remove the mamra from the oven and transfer it into a big mixing bowl.
  • Add sugar and red chili powder. Mix well.
  • Heat oil in a small pan.
  • Add mustard and cumin seeds.
  • Add asafetida and pour the oil onto the mumra.
  • Mix the mumra well.
  • Break up the circular sev gently and add it to the mumra. Don't powder the sev, you just want small pieces.
  • Mix everything gently.
  • Store in an airtight container till required.
  • Serve as a tea time snack.

Notes

  • If you wish, you can add fried cashew nuts, peanuts or even roasted ones.
  • To make it even more healthier add more mumra.
  • Can add a sprig of fresh curry leaves to the tempering for a different flavour.
