Sev Poori

This is again my friend Sari's recipe and pics. She called me to her place to teach me how to make this from scratch. We had a wunnerful time together and that evening my whole family was at her place enjoying a buffet- we had sev poori, bhel poori, aloo tikki chaat, papdi chaat, chole bhature.. phew...that was one helluva wonderful party.... and each and every dish served was just outta the world...

For the Papdis:

Rawa/Semolina: 1 cup
Maida:  1 tbsp 
Soda Bicarbonate: a pinch
Oil: 1 tbsp

Oil: for deep frying

Make a smooth dough with the above adding just enough warm water.
Keep this covered( preferably with wet cloth) for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Take small balls out of it and roll it thin.
Using a cutter or a lid of a tin, cut into smaller circles

Now prick with a fork on all the rolled out discs so that it wont puff up in oil.

Fry these in batches.

Drain on an absorbant paper and once cool, store in airtight containers till ready to be used.

For Sev Poori:

Sev; 1 cup
Onion: 1 cup diced
Tomato; 1 chopped fine
Potato: 1 boiled and mashed
Chaat Masala: to sprinkle
Jal jeera: to sprinkle
Black Salt: to sprinkle
Chopped Coriander: 2 tbsp
Green Chutney; as needed
Sweet chutney: as needed


Place 7 to 8 papdi's on a plate
Place potatoes on top followed by onion, tomatoes and then sprinkle with chaat masala, jaljeera and black salt on top
Now top with the green chutney and sweet chutney on top.
After this, top each poori with sev and coriander leaves.
Serve immediately.
