Ratlami Sev is a very popular snack of Ratlam city region of Madhya Pradesh. In this version the spice mix used is pepper powder and cloves.
The extra addition of clove powder along with pepper makes it slightly different from the other version I posted on Spice your Life. I referred this for details and its said that this popular sev is added with chat food as well.
Though I wanted to write so much about how this whole week went by, as this was the highlight of this entire Mega BM, I couldn’t spend time writing as we are traveling. So I had to schedule all the posts ahead.
