Baked Sev

How many times have you felt depressed yearning for your favourite foods but unable to indulge as you are on ‘diet’? My dear readers, do not despair any longer, as I have conjured up a baked version of sev that tastes equally great! it tastes brilliant when used as a topping on snacks like bhel, sev puri, etc.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes. Cooking Time: Nil. Makes approx. 1 cup (14 tbsp).
Baking Temperature: 200°C (400°F). Baking Time: 13 to 15 minutes.

1 cup besan (Bengal gram flour)
¼ tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
¼ tsp asafoetida (hing)
2 tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp powdered sugar
2 tsp oil
Salt to taste

1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a semi-soft dough, using approx. 2 tbsp of water.
2. Shape the dough into a cylindrical roll, fill the dough into the “sev press” and press out thin strands onto a greased baking tray.
3. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 8 to 10 minutes or till it turns light brown in
4. Cool, store in an air-tight container and use as required.

Handy tip:
1. Ensure you use a sev press plate with very thin holes so the sev bakes faster and is crisper.
2. If your baking tray is small, make this recipe in 2 batches.
