Karasev and Blog Awards

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.....


Kadalamaavu/besan/gram flour 21/2 cups
Rice flour1 cup
Red chilly powder1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds1.5 tsp
Black Pepper(coarsely ground)1 tbs
Butter/ghee4 tbs
Turmeric powder(optional)1/2 tsp
Cooking soda 2 pinch(optional)
Oilfor frying
Saltto taste


                       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.
Mix it well till everything gets blend properly and crumbly.Divide it to four equal portions,take each portion in a plate and sprinkle water to make a soft dough just before frying.Fill the murukku maker with the prepared dough.
Squeeze it in the hot oil  for two layers and fry it in a medium flame till it gets crispy.Drain it on a paper towel.
Store it in an air tight container,once its cool down completely.
  • 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.
