Pepper Karasev - prepared with besan flour,  rice flour and spiced up with chilly powder and freshly ground black pepper powder. Great evening snack during winter days. If you are looking for an easy snack to prepare within an hour, try this pepper karasev. It comes together easily without much work. Karasev is typically made by scrapping the dough in a ladoo ladle. It's difficult for me to scrape directly into the hot oil, so I prefer to use the murukku press. But if you like the traditional method, you can prepare as you wish.
