Ratlami Sev is a popular type of spicy snack originating from the city of Ratlam in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is a variety of sev, which are crispy fried noodle-like snacks made from chickpea flour (besan). Ratlami Sev is known for its unique blend of flavors, combining spiciness, tanginess, and a hint of sweetness.
- Chickpea flour (besan)
- Oil for deep frying
- Spices: red chili powder, turmeric powder, black pepper, cumin seeds, ajwain seeds (carom seeds), asafoetida (hing), and more
- Salt to taste
- Sugar (for the slightly sweet flavor)
- Garlic (optional, for additional flavor)
- Preparing the Dough: To make Ratlami Sev, a dough is prepared using chickpea flour, spices, salt, and a small amount of oil. Water is added gradually to form a smooth and slightly stiff dough.
- Frying: The dough is then passed through a sev maker or a special press with a sev plate attachment. This device creates thin strands of dough that are directly dropped into hot oil for deep frying.
- Spices and Flavors: The sev strands fry quickly and become crispy. Once they’re golden brown, they are removed from the oil and drained. While still warm, the fried sev is tossed with a blend of spices that give Ratlami Sev its distinct flavor. This includes a mix of red chili powder, turmeric, cumin seeds, ajwain seeds, black pepper, asafoetida, and salt. Some variations also include garlic for additional flavor.
- Slightly Sweet: One unique aspect of Ratlami Sev is its slight sweetness. A small amount of sugar is often added to the spice mix, which balances out the heat and adds an interesting dimension to the taste.
- Cooling and Storing: After the Ratlami Sev is seasoned, it is allowed to cool down and then stored in airtight containers to maintain its crispiness.
Ratlami Sev is often enjoyed as a standalone snack, but it can also be used as a topping for various Indian snacks like poha (flattened rice), chaats, and more. It’s a beloved street food and snack in the region and is recognized for its bold and flavorful profile.
