Karasev | Karachevu | Easy Diwali Snacks Recipe

Karasev | Karachevu is a easy snack which could be made in a jiffy without too much of efforts. It is a South Indian deep fried snack  and can be made with store bought flours.
Ingredients:
  • Rice flour – 1 up
  • Besan flour | Bengal gram flour – ¾ cup
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Pepper powder – ½ tsp
  • Asafoetida | Hing – ¼ tsp
  • Jeera | Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
  • Butter – 2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil – for deep frying

Method:
  1. Sieve both the flours with a fine sieve.
  2. Add all dry powders i.e. sieved flours, chilli powder, pepper powder, asafoetida, jeera, turmeric powder  & salt and mix well.
  3. Now add butter at room temperature and crumble this with the flour.
  4. Add water little by little and make a soft dough like chapatti dough.
  5. In the mean time, heat oil in a broad kadai  and check by dropping a pinch of dough into the oil. If the dropped dough comes up quickly, then it is ready for frying.
  6. Grease the murukku press (with Thenkuzhal Achu)  with oil and fill it with the dough. Press the murukku press  directly into oil  in circles.
  7. Once the bottom is done, flip it to other side and take out when the sizzling sound subsides.
  8. Once it is cool, break into pieces  and store in an air tight container.

Spicy, crispy karasev is ready to enjoy with hot tea!

Note:
  • If you like to use baking soda, then you can add while sieving the flours.
  • Frying has to be done in medium heat.
