Lemon Sevai with Idiyappam sticks

We can different types of sevai with idiyappam like coconut sevai, tomato sevai, puliyodarai sevai, sweet sevai etc, but I always love to have lemon sevai. Idiyappam/sevai is a very common and delectable South Indian breakfast made with rice flour. When you have left over idiyappam you can always flavour them with lemon or coconut or tomato or any ingredient of your choice. Here I have used the readymade concord rice sevai to make this lemon sevai.

Here’s how to make Lemon Sevai with step by step photos…


Ingredients

Instant Rice Sevai packet
200 gm
Green chillies
4 to 5 slit length wise
Ginger
One inch piece finely chopped
Lemon
1 big
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
½ tsp
Channa dal/kadalai paruppu
1 tbsp
Fried Peanuts
10-12
Cashew nuts
10-12
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Asafoetida/Perungauam
One pinch
Curry leaves
10-12
Coriander leaves/Cilantro
2-3 tbsp finely chopped
Oil
3 tbsp
Salt
As needed
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes 
Serves: 2-3

Method

Cook the rice sevai according to the instructions on the pack and drain all the water and keep it aside. Squeeze the lemon juice without the seeds and keep it aside.


Heat oil in a wide pan, splutter mustard seeds, add cumin seeds, asafoetida, channa dal, curry leaves and let it turn to half golden brown colour.


Now add the cashew nuts, peanuts and fry until all of them turn to golden brown colour.


Add the green chillies, ginger and fry for about a minute or until it starts to change colour.


Now add the turmeric powder, lemon juice, salt and switch off the stove.


Add the cooked rice sevai/idiyappam and mix really well until the lemon mixture is thoroughly mixed with the sevai.


Finally add the finely chopped cilantro/coriander leaves and mix well. Adjust the amount of salt and lemon juice according to your taste.

Serve this delicious and quick Lemon Sevai with coconut chutney or any chutney of your choice.
