Happy Wednesday! We are preparing Sev ki Sabzi today. Today’s recipe is a quick and easy dish of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. In Gujarat it is popularly known as sev tamatar nu shaak, the only difference in both the dishes is that sev tamatar nu shaak is slightly less spicy. Sev basically is an Indian snack consisting of long, thin strands of gram flour, deep-fried and spiced. We are using ratlami sev for this recipe. It is famous for its spicy flavour.
