Lemon sevai

Idiyappam is such a wonderful dish, that you can have plenty of varieties to do with it. Idiyppam can be taken as such with any side dish or prepared as sevai. Each sevai taste differently, I have posted only lemon sevai here. Sweet sevai, pepper sevai, vegetables sevai, coconut sevai it goes on..... Will try to update as much as I can. Mostly for guest we prepare sweet sevai and lemon sevai, which are very common. The ingredients list may be big, but very easy to prepare with common ingredients.

  • Idiyappam/String hoppers - as per need
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
  • Pepper - 2, crushed
  • Peanuts - 2 tbsp
  • Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Chana dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilly - 1
  • Green chilly -1
  • Grated ginger - 1/4 tsp
  • Asafoetida(hing)- 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
  • Curry leaves - 5


Let idiyappam cools completely. Break into small pieces with the help of your fingers. Do gently, do not mash it. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, after it splutters add cumin seeds, pepper, peanuts, urad dal and chana dal.
After the peanuts are fried add curry leaves, red chilly, green chilly, grated ginger, asafoetida, salt and turmeric powder. After few seconds, switch it off. Add lemon juice. Transfer to idiyappam and mix gently.
Serve as it is or with any chutney as side.

  • Add peanuts, urad dal ,.... in order and give time for frying before you add another.
