Lemon Sevai

This  was our yesterday's evening tiffin. My girls used to give trouble for eating this sevai. But this time, they liked it. This is one of my favorite tiffin too. Here is the recipe for making lemon sevai.


  1. Rice sevai - 1 cup
  2. Turmeric powder - 3/4 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Lemon - 1
  5. Green chillies - 1 or 2 (acc to taste)
  6. Ginger - a small piece
  7. Cahsews - few
  8. Curry leaves - few
  9. mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  10. urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  11. Channa dhall - 1/2 tsp
  12. Sesame Oil - 2 tbsp
  13. Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
Take a wide vessel, put the sevai in it. Add the required amount of salt and pour required amount of hot boiling water on top it (just required amount to cover the noodles). Cover it with a lid and keep it aside. Drain it after 10 to 15 mts. Keep it aside. In the mean time, squeeze the juice from lemon and keep it aside.

Take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, urad dhall, channa dhall, curry leaves, cashew nuts, green chillies, ginger, turmeric powder and fry it till it becomes golden brown. Now add the drained noodles to it and mix it well. Turn off the stove. Remove the pan from the stove top. Add the lemon juice to it and mix it well. Just add required amount of lemon juice. Taste it before adding extra juice. Mix it well and garnish it with coriander leaves. Serve it hot with coconut chutney.
