Karasev is one of the preferred snack in South India along with a cup of piping hot filter coffee! It is usually made by pressing the dough through a ladle with holes to get small long strips. But it can be easily made using the thenkuzhal plate of murukku press. Pepper or garlic can be used as spice for making this. Try this millet karasev for evening snack and get amazed by the crispy and crunchy taste!



  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil in a wide bowl.
  2. Add water little at a time and make a soft dough.
  3. Heat oil in a pan.
  4. Using the thenkuzhal plate of murukku press, press small strips in the hot oil.
  5. Flip them a couple of times in between and when it becomes crisp, remove and drain excess oil using a kitchen tissue.
  6. Once cooled, store in an air tight container.


  1. Once the oil is hot enough to fry, keep the heat on medium and fry the sev. This prevents darkening of sev and gets cooked well from inside.
