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.
Chiroti is one of the delicacies of Karnataka. This Sweet dish is considered as royal dessert. This chirote or Padir Peni or penori is made during weddings. Traditionally this recipe calls for Chiroti Rave ( the name for this sooji/rave comes from this sweet) , now a days this is prepared using Maida / All Purpose flour. Chiroti as such it is not sweet by itself. This flaky sweet served with Powdered Sugar and Saffron Badam Milk. My daughter like to eat crisp Chiroti with powdered Sugar. My son wants to add Badam Milk to this. However the way we want to eat Chiroti it is just mouthwatering, amazing sweet.

Bevu-Bella signifies that we have to give prominence to both Joy and sorrow, which is inevitable in everyone’s life path. In fact, the flavors are just that – bitter and sweet – resulting in “bittersweet”.
Every region has its own variation for preparing Bevu-Bella. This variation is traditionally followed from my mother-in-law with North-Karnataka influence.
