Lemon Sevai

I’ve fallen terribly behind schedule in posting my healthy recipes because I’ve been swept up in a movie watching frenzy and the resultant domino effect on everything else. If you have to watch the first day first show at 4 am and get back in time and drop kids off at school, come back home and leave to office then you’ve got to prep your ass off. If you have to watch the same movie the next evening with your office buddies and you’ve got a ton of work to get through, you’ve got to work your ass off. All for cinema.

What will we do without cinema? It’s heartening that I am surrounded by bigger, crazier cinema fans. End of this week I would have watched Petta 3 times. How many times have you watched Petta?

Instructions
  1. Soak sevai in normal room temperature water for 2 minutes. Squeeze out the water from the sevai and place in a plate.
  2. To a kadai, add the oil and wait till it gets hot. Add the mustard seeds and wait till the mustad seeds splutter. Add the split urad dal and allow them to turn golden brown. Add the curry leaves, grated ginger, chopped green chillies and onion and fry until the onion turns translucent. Add salt, turmeric powder and lemon juice and mix well.
  3. Add the softened sevai to the kadai and mix well. Fry for 3-4 minutes or until the sevai is nicely mixed up with spiced onion mixture. Add the chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Serve hot!

    Onion in sevvai? This is the first time that I have come across it. I love Sevvai – but it has to be plain with just a bit of salt.
