  • Heat oil - add the items listed under 'to temper' let it splutter, fry till dal turns golden brown.
  • Then add coconut and saute for few mins till the moisture reduces. Add required salt
  • Then add cooked sevai and give a quick toss. Garnish with ghee fried cashews and give and quick stir and switch off.
  • Serve Coconut Sevai hot or warm!


  • Always while preparing dough for idiyappam make sure its not too tight or too loose to get the perfect soft idiyappam. Also cool down then separate to get it easily separated.
  • While pressing don't layer too much that helps in even cooking.
  • I usually use idiyappam press which has small holes but for sevai varieties I use the bigger hole just for a variation.
