In konkani “shevayi/shevai”, in Kannada “Sevige”, rice noodles in English, Noolputtu in Malayalam—Its served as breakfast with sambar or Banana Harshale or Mango pickle and coconut oil etc. Its my favourite breakfast.
I learnt this from my mom. My Grand Mom (mom’s Mom) used to prepare it best, because of the aroma of coconut and coconut oil there is no need of any side dish. Taste of coconut gives nice aroma to it. Here i am showing the step by step method of making sevai without using oil
White rice 2 cups
Grated coconut 1 full
Salt to taste.
Soak white rice for 3 to 4 hours. Then grind this with grated coconut and salt into fine thick paste and keep aside.
Heat one kadai and pour this mix and make this into thick dough like in pic then let it cool for some time.
Then make ball from this batter.
Steam this balls for 15 to 20 min.
Put this balls in Sevai Danthe(noodles maker) and press them.
Rice noodles ready to serve. Normally in my grandma’s home, we eat this with drops of coconut oil. Good combination with sambar and coconut oil.
