    I see you have mentioned something about the idiyappam press. I do have a wooden idiyappam press. But it has very tiny holes. 🙁 Can i use that to make this? I forgot totally how sevai looks back home!! 🙁 I mean..its thickness..

      Priya, idiyappam press is the perfect one, unfortunately I don't have one and got to go with my regular murukku press. What you have is the right one, go ahead and make it. Thanks.

    I just finished making it. I got exactly same color and the shape as shown in picture. Taste was awesome. I grinded omam with water and filtered it through fine sieve. Thanks Mullai.

    I could not wait till weekend, so with all ingredient I made this today , ( Hathi Brand Besan), I did not get the bright yellow color, but everything else was same. Excellent taste. I then made some Kara boondhi, fried peanuts , cashews and converted half into a kara micture. Superb.

    Excellent presentation, I don’t have Omam, otherwise I would have made it today.. But will try over the weekend. Did u add any turmeric pinch to get that nice color, or is it the Besan that is giving that color.

      I've not added any colour or turmeric, its just besan. Meera brand besan was used for this recipe. If you prefer colour then use light lemon yellow, a pinch mixed in water would work.
