Palak Shev
 After ages, I used my mom's old wooden shev press to make this palak shev.

Recipe - 3/4 cup gram flour, 1/4 cup rice flour, seasonings - salt, red chilli pwd, generous pinch of hing and pinch of ajwain seeds, 1/2 cup spinach puree with handful of cilantro thown in (I used frozen spinach and did not add any additional water to puree), 2-3 tbsp. oil plus additional for deep frying.

Mix the flours and seasonings in a wide bowl. Rub with 2-3 tbsp. oil till crumbly texture. Then slowly add the spinach puree and knead into soft dough.

Using a shev press with thin shev disc, insert the dough into the press and drop the sev into medium hot oil in circular motion. Fry in batches, couple minutes each side. Drain on paper towel. When shev cools, crumble with hands and store in air tight container.

Fruit Pie Rangoli
I used a base of graham crackers. Topped it with a mixture of cream cheese (8 oz pack thawed), lemon curd (about 3-4 tbsp.), 1 tub of cool whip gently folded in and few drops of vanilla essence. Spread this as evenly as possible on the base. Then top with fruits of choice.
