Vamu Poosa

My second recipe under Festival Special for this week is Vam Poosa. Vam poosa is version of sev  in Andhra pradesh. This version of sev is little different then normal sev what we use in chat. sev is made with only besan and make with small holes. Vam poosa is made with a mixture of besan and rice flour and flavored with vamu (ajwain). These are little thick then sev and can not use in chat. We don't use red chilli powder in this recipe, in the place of red chilli powder we use crushed black pepper and lot's of vamu so that the name came to this as vam poosa..
Let's check the recipe...
