Pepper Karasev Recipe | Diwali Special Recipes

Karasev is a simple and easy to make snack for Diwali. I have posted spicy garlic karasev earlier and the recipe calls for red chilli powder. Today I am sharing pepper karasev that is one of my favourites. This snack is very addictive and since we are using besan flour it may cause digestion problem. So, I advise you to add either garlic or asafoetida without fail. Even beginners can try this recipe and it will not lead you into trouble. Make sure to fry in medium flame and you will get crispy karasev. Check out my other Diwali special recipes too. Off to the recipe:
Besan Flour - 1 Cup 
Rice Flour - 1/4 Cup 
Freshly crushed pepper - 2 tsp 
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Butter - 1 tblsp 
Jeera - 1 tsp  
Salt - as required 
Oil - to deep fry
1. Crush the pepper corns and make it a rough powder. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the oil. Add water little by little and make a smooth dough. I used the below shown press for making the karasev.
2. Fill the press with the dough as shown below. Heat oil in a kadai and press the sev in the hot oil. Make sure to press the karasev in circular motion and don't make too many layers. Fry it in medium flame and flip to cook the other side as well.
3. Fry it until the bubbles and the 'shh' sound ceases. Drain it from the oil and place it on the tissue paper to remove the excess oil. Roughly break the karasev as shown below and store it in an airtight container.
Serve the crispy snack along with evening coffee/tea.
Points to remember:
  • To get the soft and melt in mouth Karasev, you can replace the rice flour completely with 1/4 cup of powdered Pottukadalai Powder(Gram Flour powder).
  • If you are making in bulk, keep the leftover dough covered until using it. If it is dry and you feel difficult to press, then sprinkle a little more water and knead it again.
Warm Regards,
