Masala  Karasev  is a wonderful tea time snack, which can be made in a jiffy. It is a very popular dish in Tamil Nadu and can be found almost in all Sweet shops. 
This traditional spicy snack with the flavor of cumin seeds and black pepper tastes totally yumm.  As the weather is getting chill day by day, I thought of preparing something spicy and crunchy to munch on & it tasted awesome. My kids loved this fried snacks with sambar rice and curd rice.
Make delicious Masala  KaraSev  using this simple and tasty recipe..:)
