Homemade Potato Sev – Indian Style Spicy Fried Noodles

Few Indian snacks evoke the kind of love and response across all the states in India as does Bhujiya Sev or Bhujia or simply Sev.
By Sonia Mangla

Sev is a crunchy and spicy snack to munch anytime of the day and any occasion. 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 dash of chat masala).
