Hope you all had a wonderful and safe Diwali celebration with family and friends as we did. Though there’s nothing much we do on Diwali, I love cooking some of the traditional dishes on this occasion. Along with our regular menu, I made some masala vada, thenkhuzal murukku, sev etc. to make the day special. There’s one more thing that I love about this festival is the lights that shower from the skies and rotate on the grounds. We can see enormous shades of light around the vicinity which is why it is called ‘the festival of lights’. I lit a few lamps/diyas at home which was looking marvelous. And at the end of the day, we had loads of fun bursting basic crackers like sparkles and flower pots. Little one enjoyed watching those beautiful colors and sparkles around.
Coming to today’s recipe, Plain Sev or Oma Pudi or Ompudi is one of my favorite snacks from my childhood days. I love this because it is tasty, crunchy, and crisp. I’m sure this is one of the addictive snacks which you can munch on non-stop.
