Sev mamra snack is not only kids’ favourite but also loved by adults. Tell me – क्या आप नाश्ते में से जली हुई मूंगफली ढूंढ-ढूंढ कर सबसे पहले खा जाते हो? 🤣🤓
If your answer is YES, you will like the snack recipe am sharing today. This snack is straightforward to make. Not only this, but you can add a variety of other items to make it more eatable.
This puffed rice snack is popular amongst Indian households, and we all know about it. Therefore let’s cut the crap and jump directly to the list of items needed. Once done with the ingredients, we will move on to the making process.
Since we discussed the sev mamra snack, I will tell you what else you can add apart from the things mentioned here. So, let’s get started.
Making sev mamra more tempting
The snack recipe I have shared is a regular one with minimal ingredients. But wait, that’s not it. There’s an entire list of other materials. You can convert regular sev mamra into a new & dry tea time snack by adding them.
Here’s the list of items.
- Dry coconut flakes (coconut chips)
- Roasted Kaju (cashews)
- Rock salt
- Roasted chana dal (split chickpeas)
- Red or black raisins
- Green chillies
The above ingredients are typically used in the traditional Indian poha chivda snack. However, we can add all of them here as well.
How to make it spicy?
Of course, the making process is effortless. Not only effortless, but the time required is also minimum. For example, my daughter-in-law makes sev mamra for her kids in the morning while making breakfast. I mean, it’s that easy.
The making process involves tempering the red chilli paste with curry leaves & peanuts. After that, add puffed rice. Finally, coat the puffed rice, aka mamra, in the oily red chilli liquid.
Doing this, you get the masala sev mamra. If you want a regular one, skip red chilli paste & add turmeric powder.
Finally, garnish the sev mamra with fried besan sev & VOILA! Your masaledar snack is ready. Munch it anytime & anywhere.
Sev Mamra Extra Shots
I love making this snack at home often. Since I make it regularly, I have encountered some fantastic tips. Follow them for better results. Here they are.
- Roast peanuts and curry leave a little more to add extra crunchiness.
- Sprinkle roasted coriander powder and red chilli powder instead of the paste.
- Puffed rice will easily catch moisture. Hence, store sev mamra in a container.
- Sprinkle chaat masala and rock salt as needed. It will enrich the taste.
- Avoid adding aloo sev. It is thick. We need traditional thin yellow sev.
- If you add coconut flakes, Kaju or chana dal, then roast them properly.
- You can also add daliya (porridge) instead of chana dal. Try it. You will like it.
Sev Mamra FAQs
Will puffed rice become soft when mixed with cooking oil?
No, they won’t become soft because of these reasons. First, the cooking oil’s quantity is too less to make them soft. Second, heat will keep away the moisture. Therefore, you will get crispy and crunchy snacks.
What else can I add to Gujarati Sev Mamra?
There are great ingredients that pair well with sev mamra. For instance, dry coconut flakes, cashews, sugar, rock salt, roasted chana dal, red or black raisins, green chillies and cornflakes.
How is the taste of Sev Mamra?
Your sev mamra will be mildly spicy, crunchy, and nutty with an added taste of gram flour sev. All in all, it will be safe for kids to eat or even take them to their school.
How do I prevent puffed rice from being soft over time?
You can’t keep it crispy and crunchy for a long time. On the contrary, even if you store them properly, they will immediately catch moisture if exposed to air. Hence, make it, store in a tight container and finish it asap. Avoid storing it for a more extended period.
