Lemon Sevai Recipe - Lemon Idiyappam Recipe

Lemon Sevai - Lemon Idiyappam Recipe
We usually make plain savoury sevai or this lemon sevai. Though I prefer the sweet version I can have this when accompanied with the sweet version. Hubby loves anything savory so undoubtedly this is his favourite too, and mittu is like me...she loves the sweet version :)

My Notes:

  • You can soak the channa dal in water for few mins to make it soft and then use it for tempering too.
  • I usually add the lemon juice and switch it off immediately to avoid bitterness.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves if you prefer.

  20. Hello, I want to try this recipe this evening. My question is, for how long can we store ready (boiled) Idiyappam? and if yes then How should we store them? can we prepare it in advance and store it and then use it whenever we want?

  23. @Anuja : You can make the idiyappam ready 3-5 hrs ahead and refrigerate it, then while making lemon sevai just steam cook the refrigerated idiyappam for 2-3 mins and can use it....Storing overnight is not recommended....
