Omapodi  or sev

Omapodi  or sev is one of the popular evening snack. I generally make this and mix it with South Indian savory-  mixture. I use omapodi for garnishing my chaat items. It’s very simple to prepare You can make a large amount at one shot and store this for future use.

We can make different sizes using thin and thick hole mould.
