Vegetable Sevai




                                                                   I have tried different types of sevai in Gnanambika mess in Narda Gana Sabha during music festivals.It is really good and mouthwatering.I have tried this one with Instant sevai(mtr) and made some variations to suit my children's taste.

You just have to boil the sevai and cool it.Saute some vegetables and add your own spices and mix it up with the boiled sevai.I always look for dishes without much oil and more of vegetables.
