Prep and Cooking Time: 45 mins.


4 cups Gram Flour (Besan Flour)

½ tsp Turmeric Powder

¾ tsp Red Chilli Powder (very fine powder)

¼ tsp Asafoetida (Hing)

2 tsp Salt

Corn Oil to Deep Fry


  1. Sieve the gram flour in a big mixing bowl, add turmeric, chilli powder, asafoetida, and salt.

  2. Knead the dough with water, keeping it soft but stiff.

  3. Using a sev sancha, put the blade with tiny holes and pipe the mixture into a circle, about 6 inches.

  4. Deep fry on high heat on one side for 2-3 minutes, then flip and fry for another 2-3 minutes more until you don’t hear it sizzling, drain on a paper napkin.

  • Enjoy it with breakfast or a teatime snack!


If the dough is too soft, it will fall with tiny lumps; that’s why I keep it stiff to come out nice and even.

If you want to make the nylon sev, then void the red chilli powder.
