Ratlami Sev

Ratlami Sev

A delicious deep fried snack in Indian cuisine, made of gram flour, spices and oil. Recipe from Gujarati Rasoi Show, You Tube Video !!

Makes: 100 – 110 g


Please use same measuring to measure gram flour and water.

1 cup / 200 ml (Indian standard measuring cup of 200 ml / 8 oz capacity) Besan (gram flour / kadala maav / chone pitti), please use fresh gram flour of latest manufacturing date

½ teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon kala namak (optional)

1 tablespoon  oil (or 1 – 3 tablespoon)

1/2 teaspoon omam (ajwain / carom seeds) powder

¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder

¼ teaspoon pepper powder

¼ teaspoon jeera powder

¼ teaspoon cooking soda

¼ cup/ 50 ml + 3 teaspoon water

300 ml oil to fry


Sieve gram flour.

In a wide bowl, mix sieved gram flour with above ingredients  (except 300 ml oil). Mix well with fingers (do not use tablespoon) for 5 minutes until all the ingredients well combined.

Add ¼ cup of water and make a soft dough (add extra 1 – 3 teaspoon water if required to  form a soft dough). Dough should be like chapatti dough. Other wise it is very difficult to make sev and it won’t  easily come  out from sev mould.

Put this dough in a murukku / chakali mould. Use  big size sev plate (with lots of big holes) to make Ratlami  sev.

Heat oil in a wide kadai / frying pan and reduce heat to medium and please wait for 1 minute.  Fry directly in hot oil (give circular rotations with chakali machine) on a medium heat until light golden color and crisp in 4 batches (depending upon the size of the kadai / frying pan, maintain medium heat. Otherwise it will turn into brown color immediately).

 Drain and place on kitchen towel to absorb extra oil. Break into 1 – inch small pieces and store in an airtight container.
