Omapodi / Besan Sev is a crispy crunchy delicious and traditional Indian snack variety made with Bengal gram dal flour or besan. The speciality of this recipe is the flavour of Ajwain (Omam in Tamil) which infused into the sev,hence it is called omapodi. Keep in mind the amount of Ajwain you are adding, it should not be added too much as it overpowers the taste and make the omapodi bitter. Moreover the consistency of the dough is very important it should neither be hard or too soft. Check out how to make traditional omapodi recipe below.
