MILLET HAKKA NOODLES | MILLET SEWAI RECIPES

Millet-sevai
Millet recipes are gaining so much popularity now a days. Recently i have got the Millet sewai packets from Bhairavi Naturals, supplier of Organic Millets in Singapore.  They gave me a packet of Varagu Sevai and Kuthiraivali sevai packet to try it out. They deliver Organic millets at reasonable price at your doorsteps.I have given a recipe for Aval Kitchen long back with the theme of Popular Singapore recipes. In that i have given the Rice noodles recipe too. When i got the millet sevai, i thought i will make this Varagu noodles in Hakka noodles style. It was a super hit and got ready so quickly. Stay tuned for more interesting recipes with Millet.
   The recipe of Singapore Rice noodles is slightly different from this, will post that soon.

  1. Very Innovative Recipe...but could not get your 2nd note...as I thought we must dry out the sewai by the time all vegetables get cooked.
