Kara Sev | Karasev Recipe | Diwali Snacks Recipes

Kara Sev, Khara Sev, Karam is popular sev recipe in South Indian made with simple ingredients and quickly it's very good recipe for beginners and perfect for Diwali 2014 snacks, this is my absolute favorite, I love kara sev and can eat all day long :) the peppery flavors makes this sev so so good for people whom like spicy snacks will love this. Have it with a cup of coffee or tea and it's a bliss.

Kara sev also known as kara kaddi, karam sev or karam is crunchy and spicy. Use freshly crushed pepper for best results, increase or decrease peppercorns to suit your taste, though 2 tsp is just fine. You can also reduce rice flour to 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup to have more of besan/gram flour flavr but 1:1 works just perfectly. If you think what to make this this Diwali 2014 then this kara sev is perfect.


There are few versions of kara sev, there is one where only chili powder is used and another where only besan is used very similar to Besan Murukku, I shall try to post another one great recipe of same kara sev hopefully :) There is no stepwise pictures for this recipe accidentally it got deleted so bad of me :( but this is very straight forward recipe just mix everything, put in murukku press and fry it that's all easy right? So enjoy this festive season and let me know if you try this.
