Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Q. The strings stick together and where they overlap, they are impossible to separate so I had a clump of sev? 
    While pressing the sev press, make sure you put in a single row. Allow to bake completely, light brown. The colour is very important here.

i gave this recipe a try but was disappointed because the strings stick together and where they overlap, they are impossible to separate so I had a clump of sev. I''ll have to stick to deep frying them I guess

Great low calorie option. Ideal for any chaat recipes! You can also skip the lemon juice and add chilli powder to make it spicy.
