Homemade Potato Sev - Indian Style Spicy Fried Noodles

I have to admit that I'm loving this country - its people, its culture & its cuisine.... It took me a while to adjust, but now I'm very assured when I say "I'm Loving it".   Yet I still miss Indian festivals and home made food and Indian Street food (the most !). Today I'm going to share a recipe of Aloo Bhujiya or also known as Aaloo or Potato sev. Its a crunchy and spicy snack mix to munch anytime. If you skip Aloo (potatoes) it is known as besan bhujiya (chickpea sev). Give it a shot and I'm sure you will love to munch it till last and tastes superb by adding little bit of onion and a few tomato chunks (dont forget to squeeze some fresh lime juice  & add a some chat masala). Here's the recipe ......!

Boiled Potato: 1
Chickpea Flour: 1 cup
Rice Flour: 2 tsp
Chilli Paste : 1/4 tsp
Ginger Paste: 1/2 tsp (or add ginger powder)
Salt : 1/2 tsp or to taste
Carom Seeds: 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala: 1 tsp
Oil: 2 tsp
Water: 1/4 cup or adjust to requirement

Sieve chickpea flour and rice flour in a bowl.
Grate the boiled potato and add to the flour.
Season the flour with spices, ginger and chilli paste.
Slowly add water to the flour and make a dough.
Heat oil in a deep wok or frying pan or a Deep Fryer.
Fill the Sev machine (or you can perhaps use a Pasta Machinewith the dough and rotate it in clockwise direction into the hot oil.
Deep fry till it turns golden brown from both sides.
Drain it on the paper towel.
Let it cool down for a while and enjoy with cup of your favorite tea or coffee.

Yeah, do try a topping of finely chopped onions, tomatoes and cilantro.

Can't beat this combo...
With a dash of fresh lime juice & some chunky chat masala !

Fill it in paper cones (traditionally done!) and take out with you in the evening for a munch .

Hot 'n' Spicy !!!
Love these beauties !!!

My family loved this creation, hope you'll give it a shot & don't forget to show me how you liked it !!!!
