Coconut Sevai ~ Thengai Idiyappam – Easy Tiffin Recipes
I love the simplicity of today’s South Indian style breakfast or tiffin item – coconut sevai. If you have home made sevai or store bought sevai on hand, it is the quickest, easiest and tastiest dish you can ever make. I have already done a post on how to make idiyappam at home using an idiyappam maker/chakli press. Idiyappam is nothing but rice noodles/string hoppers/sevai where rice flour dough is hand pressed using an idiyappam maker and steamed.
Whenever I make idiyappam, I usually make a large batch so that I can make at least 2 varieties of flavored sevai like lemon sevai, tomato sevai, milagu sevai, vegetable sevai, puli sevai and the likes. Coconut sevai aka thengai sevai is a light tiffin that is high on flavor. Do use roasted cashew nuts as they go very well with this utterly delicious coconut sevai which I consider a gem among easy tiffin recipes. 🙂
