4.70 from 9 votes

Ratlami sev is an accompaniment with most of our food in MP, I have grown up eating achaar, Papd, Sev with meals. Indore specially has a huge variety of Namkeens we could even think off..So here I am sharing a recipe from Indore which is quick easy & you can make it anytime with no fuss. I make it healthy too while cooking it in olive oil & loads of tomatoes. Good news for health freaks, 1 cup of this curry is less then 200 calories, so you don't have to think much & can indulge in this spicy treat when ever you want...:-)

Servings 4


  • 1 Cup Ratlami Sev
  • 2 big tomatoes (1 finely chopped or pureed & the other in big rough pieces)
  • 2 small onion (1 finely chopped & other in big rough pieces)
  • 1 red dry chili
  • 1 tej patta
  • 1 or 1 1/2 tbs red chili powder depending upon the hotness
  • 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tbsp garam masala
  • 2 tbsp coriander powder
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt
  • coriander leaves for garnish


  • In a wok, heat oil & put Tej patta & dry red chili.
  • Once starts crackling, add onions & saute till they become golden
  • Now add all dry spices with some water. After 5 mins put tomatoes & salt, salt will help the tomatoes to release water soon, Now put the lid.
  • Cook until oil separates & tomatoes become soft
  • Now add 3 cups of water & boil into slightly thick curry.
  • Now add Ratlami sev, boil for a min.
  • Garnish with Coriander leaves & serve hot with Chapati..


  • Use Akash Ratlami sev as it taste the best
  • Sev tends to soften soon, so add them 5 mins before the serving time so that you can have bites of sev as well.
  • Here I used two different styles of Oinion & tomato, rough big pieces & finely chopped,  so that the small pieces will give thick gravy &  big pieces will give bites.
