KaraSev / KaraSev Recipe / Spicy Sev Recipe

Its been ages i had this spicy and yummy karasev. Though this is not my favorite snack i love to have this as a side with rice and rasam. But The karasev which is available here are not good, crispy and i do not like it. So i decided to try it by myself and that's the only way to taste a very good kara sev :)
Here's another Diwali snack from Spicy Treats, my version of karasev-crispy, spicy and mild soft karasev. This is one quick version and you can make instantly. Traditionally this Kara sev made using karasev ladle but i used murukku press for making this kara sev with the wide holes achu /plate. This time I tried it Vegan without using butter and it turned out perfectly.

Preparation Time : 10 minutes
Cooking Time : 20-25 minutes (depends on frying pan size)
Makes about  2 cups or extra.
  1. Gram Flour / Besan Flour /Kadala Maavu    2 cups
  2. Rice Flour      1 cup
  3. Hot Oil    1 and 1/2 tbsp
  4. Chilli Powder     1/2 tsp (optional)
  5. Pepper, coarsely ground    1/2 tbsp or to taste
  6. Hing     a small pinch
  7. Salt     to taste
  • Heat 1 and 1/2 tbsp oil and keep it ready.
  • In a wide bowl/plate, add gram flour, rice flour, salt, hing and mix well.
  • To that add chilli powder, coarsely ground pepper combine well and add oil mix well.
  • Now using water knead it to a soft non sticky dough. (you can divide the mixed flour and add water to single portion and after frying it again mix water to the prepared flour and make it)
  • But you can also knead it fully if you are making in small portion like me.
  • Then grease murukku achu, fill it with dough and keep ready.
  • Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying, when it gets heated squeeze directly into the hot oil, don't press altogether like murukku, just press it lightly so that pressed dough through the hole should be 2-3" stick and using knife cut the dough so that it drop like single sticks/noodles and not like murukku pattern.
  • Fry in medium heat until the sizzling sound stops and it turns golden brown.
  • Once done, remove from the oil and drain it in a paper towel.
  • Repeat the procedure for remaining dough.
  • After cooling completely store it in an air tight container. 

Instead of oil you can also add melted butter to mix with flour.
To the same recipe you can also add garlic paste - ground 3-4 garlic cloves with little water.
Instead of chilli powder use pepper powder and make it as Pepper Karasev.
The dough will be little sticky so grease your hand with oil and knead it.
Fry karasev in medium heat.


  1. Happy Diwali. These are delicious.

  2. How addictive these karasev na,wish i get a plate rite now..

  3. Spicy sev recipe...looks super crispy and perfect too!

  4. if I don't have rice flour can I still make it

    1. Only Rice flour gives nice crispy and crunchy taste..if you skip then it will be a soft sev but i am not sure about the outcome...i haven't tried that way!Sorry!!
