Khara Sev

Khara is a kannada word. It means hot & spicy. This snack is made on almost all the festivals or also made just like that. Suitable to just snack with coffee / tea or have it as an accompaniment with rasam rice etc. I made this now becoz here the weather was getting colder everyday and its nice to have something spicy during the evenings with coffee!! Made it today and also posting it today because holiday starts next week. 

This will be my last post this year & hope to come up with new recipes in the new year. Until then try my recipes and enjoy. Happy Holidays to all my viewers.
