Garlic Karasev recipe | Diwali recipes

Garlic karasev | Lehsun sev is a gram flour based deep fried savory recipe. I have already posted karasev recipe with video. During our childhood days, appa used to buy karasev from a shop in our hometown, Madurai. They used to wrap it in a newspaper and tie with a jute thread. The moment we open the packet, the flavour of garlic and other ingredients, tempt us to finish the whole packet in one go. I wanted to try out garlic karasev for last year diwali itself, but somehow couldn't make it. Try out this easy tea time snack. Check out my full collection of diwali recipes. Scroll down till the end of the post to see the tips section.

Lehsun sev recipe
Notes:
  1. Do not make the dough in bulk. Just make 1-2 batches and squeeze the garlic sev.
  2. Else the dough will become sour and spoil the taste of the karasev.
  3. You can add 1 tsp of black pepper powder and reduce the red chili powder. 
  4. Adding hot oil to the dough gives nice crispiness to the kara sev, so do not miss it. 
  5. Instead of red chili powder you can soak few red chilies in water and grind this along with garlic.
  6. You can add few more garlic pods to get even more stronger taste of garlic. 
  7. You can use omapodi achu to make this lehsun sev.
