Besan 2  cups
Red chilly powder ½ tsp
½ tsp ajwain
Oil for frying
Salt as per taste
Turmeric powder ½ tsp

Mix the besan, salt , ajwain, red chilly powder 1tsp oil & turmeric powder in a bowl. Add  water. Make a thick paste, It should be mashed potatoes texture.
Now place this dough in the Sev machine; use a thick-holed mould as the base. Close the lid tightly from the top.
Heat the oil in a kadhai .Holding the utensil over the hot oil, force the mixture through the holes by turning the handle. As soon as noodles fall, slowly move the machine in a circular motion so that they do not stick together. As you press the dough into the hot oil, you will find the oil froths up in bubbles which will eventually subside as the sev turns to a golden shade. The frying has to be done on medium flame to achieve that golden color and crispness.
When the sev turns a golden color, turn over to the other side and let it also cook to a golden brown. Use a slotted ladle to remove onto an absorbent paper and cool. Repeat the same process till the rest of the dough is done..Cool and break into uniform pieces & store in an air tight container.
