Vellulli Karapusa or Garlic Kara Sev is yet another variety of kara sev flavoured with garlic and is easy to make for the evening snack or any festival as well.
I love garlic taste and really enjoyed this one and must have completed the whole lot by myself! I used the same recipe that I made for the regular Kara Sev and this one turned out even more crispy and tastier because of garlic in it.
Since I made the whole lot together, Hubby Dear was like, how many can we eat. We had these snacks for a week and enjoyed during our Teatime. These are typical Jar Snacks and since these are super easy to make, you can make it quick and have it stocked for a week for your kids’ school snack box.
Chinnu and Konda loved these and wanted me to make these on a regular basis. As I had said, these snacks are popular in Tamil Nadu as well and go by the name Poondu Kara sev.

Vellulli Karapusa | How to make Garlic Kara Sev
1 cup Besan

A Pinch Turmeric Powder

How to make Garlic Kara Sev
I have the garlic crusher, so crushed everything directly into the flour. Else you can grind the cloves with salt.
Sieve the besan and rice flour together, add hot ghee, red chili powder, salt, garlic, turmeric powder and mix well.
Slowly add water and knead to a soft dough. Divide into balls and fill the murukku acchu, you will have to use the plain 3 holes acchu or blade.
Heat a Kadai and when hot, using the murukku press, press it down directly into the hot oil.
Cook on both sides and drain to a kitchen towel.
Once it cools down, break it slightly into small bits.
Store it in an airtight container.
