Plain sev


This is my mother’s favourite…she could sit and eat this all day long.

Sometimes I add salted nuts to eat and sometimes it is finished eating before I even get to open the packet with the peanuts in.

To make this you will require a morkoo machine… I never knew a machine like this even existed until I started the culinary blog.

I will tell you something, that after Diwali, my one arm muscle is definitely going to be bigger than the other… thanks to all the winding and grinding with this machine.


4 x cups chana flour.

3 x tsp baking powder.

1 ½ x tsp salt.

1 x tsp sugar.

1 ½ x cups water.


In bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

Add the water, a little at a time till a nice dough is formed.

Place into the morkoo machine and turn out into a pot with hot oil.

Fry until lightly brown, remove from the oil and drain on a paper towel.

Once cool, break up the rounds, into smaller pieces.
