Lemon Sevai/Lemon Flavored Rice Noodles

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Monday, June 20, 2011

Weekend Mornings are always lazy. We Wake-up Late with a good appetite. So, I try to cook a filling breakfast on weekends.  I tried this Lemon Flavored Sevai/Rice Noodles on a weekend. My Kid enjoyed this more than the Veggie Sevai which i have posted earlier, since it looks more closer to his favorite maggi noodles and also no veggies!!!!
200gms MTR Instant Rice Sevai
Juice of Half a lemon
2-3 tsp Cooking Oil
3-4 green chillies, sliced lengthwise
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp chana dal
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Curry leaves a few
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Boil Three measures of Water to one measure of Sevai. Let the water boil. Now add the instant sevai to the boiling water. Keep Stirring and let the sevai cook for 3 -4 minutes. When done, Strain it in a colander.
Heat a Skillet with oil, splutter mustard seeds, add green chillies, curry leaves and hing. Next add Chana dal and Fry for a minute or until the chana dal roasts well. Add turmeric powder and mix well. Switch off the flame.
Add the drained sevai to the skillet and mix well. Once the sevai is mixed well with the seasoning, add Lemon juice and mix well. Adjust salt. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve Hot with any Chutney. 

Notes: Instead of Chana dal, try adding toasted almond slices/Broken Cashews to the sevai, gives you that extra crunchiness and makes it more rich and healthy!!!!
