Sev with sattu flour and rice flour as main ingredients. Garlic, fennel is added for flavour and red chillies are added to make it spicy.
I still have some sattu flour in stock after making sattu sharbat and sattu ladoos. I wanted to try snack with it as I know it is roasted chickpeas flour, it should turn out good. Thought of making it same as my garlic sev, but added fennel seeds in my ingredients list. Have not prepared any dry snacks like this with fennel seeds. Somehow it struck me how it would be when fennel is added at the last minute of preparation and added. It turned out so flavaurful.
If you want you can also follow this same addition of fennel seeds in my other garlic sev recipe too. Check out my garlic kara sev with besan. Aj loved it so much and he finished the entire batch in few days.
