Kharada Kaddi /Kaara Sev

Karada kaddi/ Khara Shev is a spicy munching savoury and it can be munched any time of the day. I love all these fried savouries and do prepare at times. Using different ingredients and making these traditional savoures is fun too.

Here I have prepared Khara Sev/Karada kaddi (as we call it in Kannada/Karnataka). It is crispy, crunchy and healthy. I call this healthy munch because it is home made.
I have used rice flour, besan, Oma seeds/Carom seeds/Caraway seeds), chilly powder and salt. Not to forget butter.

Let us see the other name for Oma seeds in some of the Indian Languages
Oma seeds are known as Ajwain seeds/Caraway seeds/Carom seeds also. In English it is called as Carom Seeds, Hindi - Ajvan, Arabic Kamme Muluki, Tamil - Asamtavoman, Telugu -Vamu. In Malayalam it is Omum, Kannada - Oma, Marathi - Onva and in Gujarati Yavan.

Let us see some benefits of eating Oma /Caraway seeds in our diet.
Oma/Carom seeds are very good for digestive system. They are rich in anti bacterial, anti-fungal and anesthetic properties. They have good amount of vitamins, minerals, fibers and anti-oxidants. Oma seeds are used in curing indigestion, infections and headache and common cold. They also help to ingrease appetite and maintain the health of the uterus. Oma oil is used in treating ear infections. It is said that Oma seeds are good for curbing desire for drinking alcohol. They are good remedy for abdominal gas, vomiting, travel sickness and nausea. Gargling Oma water helps to reduce the sore throat.  

Kara Sev goes well with a cup of coffee/tea/juice or even you can have them as one of the side dish like papads and enjoy your meal. Good to take it for travelling, picnic, kids snack box, ladies Kitty party.
