Plain Sev or Ompudi or omapodi is very easy and addictive snack and is commonly used in Indian Chaats like Sev Puri, Masala Puri Bhel puri… For the flavor and digestion the Omkaalu or ajwain is used in this recipe. If you don’t like the ajwain, you can skip the same and prepare plain sev. This sev is not only for chaats, you can just eat it with Chai or Coffee or keep it in a bowl next to you and crunch it as you work. This truly happens in my home. My daughter loves to keep a bowl of this sev when she does her homework :) All this salty, crispy, crunchy snacks like chakli, kodbaLe, mixture …. are her companias during her homework sessions. Prepare this simple easy to make snack for Navarathri gombe bagina, as offering to Shri Krishna or for Deepavali as well.

Bitter Gourd aka Karela, hagala kaayi .. is as the name says it is bitter in taste but has enormous health benefits. With mustard and coconut gravy it is too good. Adding jaggery is optional but my mom says adding jaggery to it reduces it pitta effect. People with diabetes skip adding jaggery. My kids love this gojju with rotti, hot rice and even with chapati.
