Karasev with Green chilly - Pachai Milagai Karasev - Diwali Recipes

Karasev recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Generally, most of us use red chilly powder or black pepper powder for karasev for spiciness. In this recipe, I have used green chilly, which gives a pale yellow colour for the karasev. The taste and texture was really good. I learnt this recipe from my Sarasu perimma who is an expert in making savouries and traditional sweets. She taught me few savouries and I will post one by one in virundhombal. She told me using red chilly powder will give dark colour karasev, so try karasev with green chillies. To make this karasev we need gram flour, rice flour, roasted gram flour(fried grams flour) green chillies, butter, asafoetida and oil.  Tips to make karasev Combine all the flour  and then add the butter. You can add hot oil or melted ghee. Mix well with your palm until the mixture is mixed well with the butter. The green chillies are ground with little salt and then filtered using a fine strainer. Do not add the ground green  chilli

Ashoka Halwa - Moong Dal Halwa - Pasiparuppu Halwa - Diwali Sweet Recipes

Ashoka Halwa recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Ashoka halwa is made using moong dal, wheat flour, sugar and ghee as the main ingredients.

Later, after marriage I have not prepared it frequently and thought of sharing this recipe in my blog for a long time. So today prepared this halwa with video and pictures to post in virundhombal for this Diwali.  Actually, this halwa is an easy recipe without any complicated steps.
