this sev tomato shaak is too good and the sev adds a lot of flavor, taste and texture to the dish. sev are are crisp fried gram flour vermicelli. if you live outside india, you can get them easily in an indian grocery or sweets shop. you can buy them online too. the variety i added to this shaak or sabzi was slightly thick than the fine sev variety we use for chaat items like sev puri, bhel puri etc. you can use any variety.
