    How tempting and dangerously addictive palak sev, just love chaklis with palak but yet to make sev with. Tasty crunchy munchies, prefect savory for diwali definitely.

    Adding palak puree to the sev dough is a wonderful idea. A different kind of sev from the usual one I make. A wonderful share for the Diwali Dhamaka.
