The weather is getting colder day by day,especially this week is very cold here and we both wanted to munch something spicy and crunchy.For the spicy and crunchy cravings I made Karasev and it disappeared in two days.
Karasev is a traditional spicy snack with the flavor of cumin seeds and black pepper and originally the dough is rubbed on a perforated ladle to get the shape.Since I don't have the special ladle,used the murukku maker and squeezed the dough in to the hot oil.I got the recipe from Mrs. Mallika Badrinath's cook book and here goes the recipe.....
|Red chilly powder||1/2tsp|
|Black Pepper(coarsely ground)||2tsp|
|Cooking soda||2 pinch|
Rub the butter and cooking soda together in a wide mouth bowl or plate till frothy.Now add the gram flour,rice flour,cumin,pepper and salt.
- A tsp of fresh garlic paste can be added for extra flavor.
- The karasev will be in the crunchier side for the given measurement,for softer sev reduce the rice flour to 1/2 cup.
- Make the dough for each round which gives a perfect and crunchy karasev.
- For easy squeezing the dough should be soft and carom seeds can also be added.
