Lemon Sevai - லெமன் சேவை - Step by step

      Lemon sevai, is nothing but idiyappam ,which is tempered with the spices and added with lemon juice. It makes a variation to the normal idiyappam , which we make at home. We can also make different kind of sevais like coconut sevai,vegetable sevai,tamarind sevai, sweet sevai and curd sevai. Will post the reciepes soon. These kind of sevais are served in our "Tamil marriages". Yeah, there will be variety of food, which are spread on a banana leaf. It ranges from pickles, poriyal, aviyal, kootu, sambar, kara kuzhambu, mor kuzhambu, vatha kuzhambu,3 kind of sweets, these sevais, pappad ,payasam, banana.... It will be fun to watch the spread and indulge. Its been ages, since I visited marriages in India. Waiting for my brother's marriage .

Method:

* Now add the turmeric powder. Wait for a second and add the shredded idiyappam to the pan. When the idiyappam is just heated through, add salt and turn off the flame.

* At last , add the lemon juice and mix it real good.If we want, we can also add some fried peanuts to the sevai.

Lemon sevai is ready. We can either serve it as such or serve with chutney or sambar.
