In 15th August (Independence day) its our family tradition to have sev and boondi in our breakfast,this year too we have


1) Sev

Gram flour(besan)-1 cup
Baking soda-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Salt- to taste
Oil – for deep frying

Combine gram flour, baking soda, turmeric  powder, salt and little water - make stiff dough

Switch on the flame, put deep pan over the flame  with oil, now fill the “sev-press” with this dough,

press out strands over hot oil, now fry the strands until  golden color.

you can store this in an air tight  container

2) Boondi-


Gram flour-1 cup
Ghee-for  frying
Sugar-1 cup
Cardamom powder-1 tsp


To make sugar syrup- Mix the sugar and water together in a broad pan and cook till one thread consistency

To make Boondi- Take 1 cup gram flour and ½ cup water , mix together to make batter but take care that lumps should not be there, 

Heat the ghee in a pan,  take a perforated spoon,  pour little amount of batter over perforated spoon so that batter drops from spoon and formed boondi, do this step until all the batter is finished, 

fry boondi ,

dip in hot sugar syrup ,

sprinkle cardamom powder over boondi

 serve hot or cold as you wish but as I say boondi and  sev is a good combination
