Tomato Sevai
Sevai (Type of Idiyappam) is a popular dish in South India.
Sevai makes an excellent tiffin.Sevai making is a long process that I save for another day.

3. Onion 1 (Chopped finely)
4. Green Chillies 2 (according to taste)
5. Salt to taste
6. Hing
7. Turmeric Powder
8. Handful of Green Peas

Ingredients for Tempering:
1. Oil 2 tsp
2. Mustard Seeds
3. Urad Dal
4. Channa dal
5. Cashew Nuts.
6. Curry Leaves

Method:
1. Cook Sevai according to Instructions and Keep it aside.
2. Heat oil in a kadai add tempering ingredients and fry chopped onions and green chillies.
3. Now goes the chopped Tomato, Salt, Hing and Turmeric, cook till it resembles Chutney.

hi,
It is a cool recipe. I think it will taste great.

Pritya said...

Dear MT, Tomato Sevai - WOW! The image looks good. The original sevai that we make at home, as you say, is something else altogether. The process itself is very interesting - with its own special utensil. Good to hear that you still make your sevai using that process.
