Lahsun Sev Recipe: A flavorful snack made with chickpea flour and a generous amount of garlic The recipe is very similar to any other namkeen or sev recipe, but with the addition of lehsun or garlic. It is very simple and easy to make because it only requires a few ingredients that should be readily available in most Indian kitchens.

Recipe for Lahsun Sev with step-by-step instructions. Crispy, thick, and delicious sev made with besan (gram flour) and spices. Besan sev is a quick and savory snack made for Diwali.
This is my friend’s mother’s recipe for besan sev. This besan sev has a medium spice flavor and a crisp texture. Sev can be served as a tea-time snack or as a savory snack for Diwali.
I only made a small amount for the blog, but the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. As a fried snack, sev has a long shelf life that can last several months. However, make sure to keep them in an airtight jar.

To make this sev, you’ll need a chakli press. This sev will necessitate the use of discs with slightly larger holes. The spices can be changed to suit your taste and preferences. I did not include baking soda in the recipe, but you can add a pinch if you like.

Namkeen or sev is a basic recipe that is required in the majority of Indian households. It can be made in a variety of ways with various ingredients, with the main difference being how it is consumed. The lahsun sev recipe or garlic sev, which is an extension of plain sev, is one such extremely popular evening snack recipe.

My children and I both enjoy sev and its various varieties. We both require it, not only as a snack but also as a flavor enhancer in many of our breakfast recipes. We always enjoy poha or upma with a generous amount of sev or namkeen on the side. As a result, I always end up storing a different type of sev in an airtight container. One of the most common sev recipes I end up making is lahsun sev or garlic sev. We both like it because of the extra flavor it adds to plain sev. However, because of the garlic, we may not be able to use it every day, especially during the festival season. However, it is entirely up to personal preference.

Anyway, I’d like to highlight some of the best tips, suggestions, and variations for making the perfect lahsun sev or garlic sev. First, I added 8 garlic cloves, which should be enough for the besan quantity listed below. Having said that, you can also increase or decrease according to your preferences. Second, I used a flower-shaped shaper, which should be ideal for this recipe. However, if you prefer, you can explore the thin or even thicker layers. Finally, deep fry these in a medium to low flame to ensure even cooking. Also, when frying, do not overcrowd them and fry them in small batches.
