Indore and Sev
Sev or Seo is a popular Indian snack namkeen, consisting of small pieces of fried crunchy noodles made of chickpea flour (besan) paste, which are seasoned with turmeric, cayenne, ajwain and other authentic spices based on the location in which it is being made. These Sev can vary in thickness, spices, flavours and texture. Sev can be eaten as a standalone ready-to-eat snack as well as a topping on famous street foods like bhejpuri and sevpuri. With its long shelf life, Se can be made at home and stored for weeks if not months in an airtight container. Sev is especially popular in north Indian states like Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, where it is eaten along with sweetened Boondi topped over it.
