Lemon Sevai

This can be eaten as a break fast, very easy to make. I usually like to make this during travel and it will stay atleast 2 days


Instant rice Sevai 1 packet
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Urad dal(black gram)
1 tsp Channa dal(Bengal gram)
1 or 2 Green chillies sliced(adjust to taste)
2 Tbsps Roasted Cashew nuts
2 Tbsps Lemon juice
Pinch of asafoetida
Pinch of Turmeric powder
few curry leaves (optional)
Salt to taste
1 tsp Oil

Chopped cilantro or coriander leaves for garnish


1) In a Big vessel bring water to boil and add instant rice sevai. Stir for 3 to 4 mins, drain and keep aside.

2) Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds. Add Urad Dal, chana Dal and once they turn light brown add green chillies, curry leaves, turmeric powder, asafoetida, salt and cashews and mix.

3) Switch off the stove and add lemon juice and mix the drained Sevai and combine well.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and Serve hot with Sambar/Khurma


1) If you don't have roasted cashews roast raw cashews along with the Dals.

2) we can replace lemon juice with 1/2 cup grated coconut and Coconut Sevai tastes great too
