Sev is the salty snack that is added in many other Indian snacks like Bhel puri, Sev puri etc. This yellow colored non spicy snack is a favorite with young and old alike. It is a great anytime snack.

To make sev you will need a "Sev press". It is a press that releases the dough in stringy forms directly into the hot oil to be fried.

2 cups Bengal gram flour
2 tablespoon. Oil
1 pinch Soda bicarb
1/4 teaspoon. Asafoetida
Salt to taste
Water to make dough
Oil to deep fry
Sev press

Mix all the above ingredients to make a gooey sticky dough. Grease hands with some oil for ease in handling dough. Grease the inside cylinder of press.
Fill with dough and screw the top tight.

Heat oil in heavy large frying pan. Hold the press about 8 inches above the hot oil. When it is hot, proceed to press and drop the dough through the press. Move your hands in circular motion to make a circle and keep coming in to
form smaller circles and finish off when you come to center. You may cut off the dough with your fingers.

Cook for about a minute or so. Then carefully flip over the sev with a fork. Cook another minute, do not allow to become golden. Remove the sev when it still looks undone and whitish. Place on kitchen paper to drain and cool.

Repeat till all the dough is used up.
Store as is, or crush to small pieces.
Store in an air tight container.
