podi- sevai
Sevai | Idiyapam is a popular south Indian breakfast recipe. We make different varities of sevai at home. Recently when i was talking with a friend she was telling that her mil makes podi sevai , that is sevai with idli molagapodi. Since it  sounded easy and interesting, i thought i will share this recipe in this bachelors recipe series. Recently a friend of mine sent me 2 packets of Idiyappam maavu from Karaikudi, the chettinadu region of South Tamil nadu famous for idiyappam. The flour was awesome and the string hoppers | idiyappam came out very well. I reserved a portion of that to make this molagapodi sevai. Even you can make this with instant sevai too. Check out my other idiyappam recipes:

  • Chop the onions into small. In a pan add oil and add the mustard seeds and urad dal.
