Coconut Sevai

Sevai is basically rice noodles. In my mom's place, they usually make homemade sevai. But now a days we get instant sevai(rice noodles) in stores. I use the ready made rice sevai for making this.
Here is the recipe.

  1. Rice Sevai (noodles) - 1 cup
  2. Oil - 2 tsp
  3. Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  4. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  5. Channa dhall - 1/4 tsp
  6. Green chillies - 1
  7. Red chillies - 1 ****
  8. Fresh Coconut - 4 tbsp
  9. Asafoetida Powder - a pinch
  10. Cashew Nuts - 5
  11. Curry Leaves - few
  12. Salt to taste
First put the rice noodles in a wide vessel, Pour one to two cups (just to cover the noodles) of hot boiling water. Put the required amount of salt in it and cover it with a lid and keep it aside for 10 to 15 mts. After 15 mts. drain the excess water (by then, noodles will be fully cooked). Take a wide pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dhall, channa dhall, green chillies, red chillies, asafoetida powder, cashew nuts and curry leaves and fry it till golden brown. Now put the coconut, and saute' for a minute. Now add the noodles to it and mix everything well. Serve it hot with coconut chutney or some other chutney.

**** - Using red chillies is optional.
