Then mix the Hot Oil with the Besan.
Then add water as per requirement and knead the Beasn to prepare the Schezwan Sev Dough.

While adding the Sev, the flame should be set to high and after adding the Sev, it should be reset to low.
Remove from the fire, when the Sev starts appearing crispy and crunchy and keep it on paper so that the excess Oil is drained away.
