Sev Tomato Curry

              Sev is a savory crispy snack made from chickpea flour or gram flour. Some brands in the US also call it Indian Noodles. The Sev-Tomato curry is made with sev and ripe tomatoes. This is a very popular dish among Gujaratis.

       Sometimes, if you feel like making something really quick with minimal efforts or if you run out of vegetables at home, then this is the curry you can count on.

This is how I make this tangy and spicy dish:

  • 4 Medium Sized Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Sev
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp Coriander-Cumin Powder
  • 1 tbsp Red Chili Powder
  • 1/2 cup finely Chopped Cilantro
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of Asafoetida 
  • 2 tsp Oil
  • Heat some oil in a pan
  • Once it is heated, add asafoetida and cumin seeds to it. 
  • Add chopped tomatoes to it, as soon as cumin seeds start to crackle.
  • Add salt as per taste.
  • Once the tomatoes are cooked, add all the spices, turmeric powder, coriander-cumin powder and red chilli powder to it and mix well. 
  • Make sure there is enough gravy, if it is too dry add some water and mix well
  • Now add some cilantro to it.
  • Once the gravy is done, get it off the heat, and add Sev. Mix well.
  • Serve immediately.
  • This curry can be had with any type of Indian Bread.
Some Tips:
  • Make this curry at the serving time. It tastes best while it is hot.
  • The Sev will absorb most of the gravy. So, having it a long time after cooking, won't taste good
  • You can buy the Sev from any Indian store. Preferably, buy the medium thick Sev as the fine Sev will get too soggy.
