Tomato Sevai/Idiyappam

This is one quick and delicious South Indian breakfast made with rice noodles. I got the readymade sevai/idiyappam from the stores. So this can be made in a jiffy. I usually like to have my idiyappam with coconut and sugar, but this savory tomato sevai has become a new favorite.


Ingredients (makes 1 serving)
Rice sevai/idiyappam - 1/2 packet
Tomato - 1
Green chilly - 1
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Urad dal - 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - for garnish

Directions
Cook the sevai/idiyappam as per the instructions in the packet. Usually it requires adding the readymade sevai to boiling water and then draining the water after a minute.
In a pan, heat the oil and do the tadka with urad dal , mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add the finely chopped tomatoes, green chillies and salt and cook till the tomatoes turn mushy.
At this point you could add any cooked vegetables like carrots and peas if you like. I did not add any.
Remove from heat and stir in the cooked idiyappam and mix well.
Garnish with coriander leaves and roasted cashews if you like.
Serve warm as it is or with any chutney.
