Preparation Method for Sev Padelu Shak


My Secrets

  • 1/2 cup besan (chickpeas flour)
  • 1 tsp Haldi (Turmeric powder).
  • 1.1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder.
  • 2 cup buttermilk.
  • 2 tbs oil.
  • 2-3 garlic cloves (optional).
  • Some coriander for garnishing. (optional).
  • Water.


How to make?

  • In a bowl, Take 1/2 cup Besan (chickpeas flour)
  • Add some salt
  • Add 1 tsp Turmeric Powder and  1.1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • We will be making this in 2 cup buttermilk; so masalas are very few
  • Now add 1 tbsp water and make a dough- should be thinner than
  • Paratha dough but not too runny; it should be semi solid-semi liquid.
  • Make sure there are no lumps of besan flour left in the dough- it should be like a smooth paste
  • Keep buttermilk ready; it should be sour for better taste. If it’s not sour then u can add few drops of lemon to make it slightly sour.
  • Heat up a deep pan; add 2 tbs oil
  • Now add some garlic chopped cloves 2-3 should be fine
  • let it cook and then add 1.1/2 tsp red chili powder
    Kathiyawadi food is slightly spicy
  • Now add 2 cups of buttermilk (make sure it’s not too thick – should be water consistency)
  • Keep stirring the pan so that buttermilk and water don’t get separated
  • Add some salt
  • Wait for a boil and then slow down the flame
  • Take a strainer and apply some oil on the surface of the strainer
  • Keep stirring the pan
  • Now take the besan paste we made earlier and rub it on the strainer
    cook till sev comes up; now stir gently
  • Again follow this process; sev coming up means it’s getting cooked.
  • Finish the process till all paste is over and you get a boil
  • That’s it Sev Padelu Shak is ready.
  • You may add Coriander on top.
    Enjoy with Roti or Rice.
