  1. I have tried to make sev couple of times , but my sev were never that soft and crisp as in market.Then I stopped making them. By looking at your pics, I think I have come to know about my mistake. My dough used to be stiffer as compared to yours. Will certainly give it a try. I’m sure they should come out fine now. Thanks for the recipe
