I know most of you would have done with all your sweet preparation, how fun it would be to spending time with family friends, sharing sweets, oil bath, crackers :) I really miss my family.. wish I could make it atleast next year.. this post is for someone who still looking to prepare some snacks..Kara sev is the most easiest snack to make and it’s a favourite for most of the people.

My Amma likes kara sev very much and she was much surprised when she heard that I made it rite. Those days they use to make kara sev out of the big ladle holes, but I just tried making it by the three hole idiyappam press which I have which made my job very easy as well. Store the kara sev in a air tight container so that the pepper and asafetida will mix up well and gives a good flavor to it. Here you go with the making. I wish all my readers a very happy diwali :)

  • Gram Flour- 1 Cup
  • Rice Flour- ¾ Cup
  • Turmeric Piwder- a pinch
  • Asafoetida- ¼ Tspn
  • Cumin Seeds- ¼ Tspn
  • Pepper grinded coarsely-1/2 Tspn
  • Salt- To Taste
  • Butter- 2 Tspn
  • Oil- For Frying


  • Melt butter and mix with all the powders with enough water and to make a stiff dough.
  • With the help of three hole muruku press gently the dough into the hot oil.
"Make the dough stiff, as if its loose, it may not come out properly from the hole."
