Vegetable Sevai

                                 Vegetable Sevai is one of the popular tiffin items of Coimbatore.

Vegetable  Sevai

Ingredients :

Shredded Idiappam / Sevai    2 cups
Onion    1
Green Chilly    2
Tomato   1
Finely sliced Carrot, Beans      1/2 cup
Fresh / Frozen Peas   2 tbsp.
Roasted groundnut / Cashew

For tempering :

Oil  2 tbsp.
Mustard, Split Urad Dhal, Curry Leaves

Method :

1. Heat oil and temper with the given ingredients.

2. Add the sliced onion, then the tomatoes.When tomato slices shrink in size, add the sliced vegetables and the Peas.Add salt and keep on stirring on medium flame till the vegetables are cooked.Little water can be added.Slit the green chilly to be differentiated from Beans while eating. Red Chilly can also be used.

I always prefer to get the vegetables cooked with little water and salt in a small pressure cooker for a whistle and slowly release the steam, that the colour of the vegetable is also retained.I have a micro wave oven but my choice is always my small pressure cooker.You can also micro wave for 5 mins. with little water and salt.

3. Add the Idiappam and stir on medium flame for 5 mins. till the tomato and the vegetables blend well with the Idiappmam.Garnish with the roasted nuts, if preferred.
