KARASEV / KARASEVU (IYENGAR STYLE) / DEEPAVALI SNACK


This is a traditional savoury served in Iyengar marriages with puliyodharai. A crispy snack as well, which can be tried and tasted for deepavali.

INGREDIENTS:

Rice flour - 1 cup
Besan flour - 1 cup
Pepper - 1 tsp.

Ghee - 2 tablespoons
Salt - as per taste
Oil - for deep frying


Gadget: Karasev ladle (This gadget gives the correct thickness for the snack). 


METHOD:


Crush the pepper coarsely.

Sieve the flour.

Mix all the ingredients. Knead to a soft dough using water little by little. Make small balls from the dough and keep it ready.

Heat oil. Hold the karasev ladle above the oil. Take a ball of dough, place it on the ladle and press it through the ladle with your hand. The bits of sev will fall on the oil. Fry them in medium flame till golden brown. Remove it from oil,drain in a kitchen towel. Repat the procedure with the remaining balls. When cool, store in an airtight container.

Serve as a snack with coffee/ tea. It goes well with puliyodharai also.

NOTE: Ensure medium heat of oil. When a small bit of the mixture is dropped, tit should rise up with bubbles. This is the correct smoking point of the oil. The dough should not be very stiff or very soft. It should be semi-stiff and pliable.

Thenkuzhal achu can also be used instead of the  karasev ladle.
