Wish you all a Very Happy Navroze In a Zoroastrian household, all  auspicious occasions like birthdays and anniversaries, ‘Sagan Ni  Sev’ is prepared without fail. It is served along with sweet curds and is  eaten  at  breakfast. It is even distributed to the  neighbours early morning so that they can savour it for breakfast. I prepared Sev on Jamshedji Navroze Morning for breakfast and decided to write down the recipe to share with everyone. Here I must add that in my young days I have watched Culinary Expert Katy Dalal  prepare sev herself and remember her giving me some vital tips during that session. I will share the easy yet skilled recipe  with you too, so read on.

  • Make a chasni of water, sugar, essence and cardamon powder. The main tip here is to slowly add a little bit of water to the sev and cook with a lid on till the water dries up. Then add the chasni little by little cooking the sev with the lid on. This will ensure that sev gets cooked well without sticking together.
