This is a continuation of my earlier post thin kara sev or plain sev. We do not prefer eating plain sev, instead I make different types of mixture using the sev. Here I have explained a simple and most common type of mixture using thin sev. You can add or leave any ingredients you wish. Even the quantity of peanuts or roasted gram can be varied as per your choice. My Mother will add deep fried thick beaten rice or poha. I have made a quick video on sev recipe, which I have embedded it below. Kindly have a look.
