Usually kaarasevu is one of the favourite snacks for the people of Tamilnadu. Different variations are used to make this delightful snack. Some people add finely ground garlic to the karasevu dough. Some people add chilli powder for the extra taste. This is a simple version of making the Kaarasevu in a perfect way. This was prepared by my co-sister who is an expert in making snacks like these. Now the recipe follows....



Gram flour- 1 cup

Rice flour- 1 cup

Pepper [ coarsely ground]-1/2 tsp

Oil-3 tbsp

Baking soda-a pinch


Sieve the flours twice and add in the pepper powder, oil, salt and baking soda. Mix well and gradually add enough water to make a smooth dough. You can warm the oil and add instead of pouring plainly in the mixture before kneading. Using the karasevu achu in the murukku press make this delightful kaarasevu ln batches in hot oil.
