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
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.
