Lemon sevai is a tangy and spicy recipe prepared by tossing cooked idiyappam / string hopper in lemon mixture. This recipe is my favorite breakfast recipe as it is similar to the lemon rice preparation and can be prepared in 10 minutes. This recipe can be prepared with ready made idiyappam packet or by making idiyappam at home from scratch, both tastes equally good. So lets get to the making!
- Instant Idiyappam – 1/2 packet
- Mustard seeds – ½ tsp
- Urad dal – ½ tsp
- Channa dal – 1 tsp
- Peanuts – 6
- Dried red chili – 1
- Green chili – 1
- Turmeric powder a generous pinch
- Oil – 1 tbsp
- Water to cook idiyappam
- Curry leaves a spring
