Get a pack of rice sevai from your local Indian store. That was easy!!!
I followed the packet instruction for cooking, no big deal..
Here’s how I did it, just incase if you need that little extra help. Start boiling the water in sauce pan. Let it come to rolling boil and switch off.
Add about 1/2 packet which is roughly 2 cups of rice sevai.
Cover with a lid and set aside for 2 minutes and not more than that.
Now the sevai gets cooked and will look like this.
Drain all the water and reserve the cooked sevai in a colander.
Meanwhile get the juice from a fresh lemon and mix salt and turmeric in it. Heat oil in a small pan and splutter mustard, split black gram, cumin seeds , peanuts, green chillies and curry leaves. Fry these for few seconds and add it to the lemon juice. Now gently mix this with the sevai and serve.
These are saviors don’t even need any side, serve them plain.
Yield: 4 adult servings for light eve tiffin.
