Plain Sev | Besan Bhujia
So in this series I will be posting what we love to eat with our tea .First day recipe is the simpler and all time favorite plain sev. Frankly speaking,this is the first attempt of me making this bhujia at home .The reason behind was the non possession of sev maker.This time I borrowed the sev maker from a neighbor ,that is still staying in my cupboard and needs to be given back.I am quite pleased with the results and made a pledge to always make plain sev at home.
