Sev/ સેવ

During my teenage days, I was never much into spending time in the kitchen let alone cooking. But there were certain dishes which I would want homemade with particular taste. And this snack is one among them. However hard I tried, I could never develop taste bud for store bought pack. Before I started learning cooking even regular simple menu, I had made up my mind that I had to know how to prepare this one. It asks for few simple ingredients, but I could never make proper dough in one shot. It was always trial and error process and I got more irritated with mess created after such trial and error than the actual making process. Anyway, today I started very patiently and in the vey fist attempt, I had it right!!
