Sada Namkeen Seviyan | Savoury Indian Vermicelli Noodles

I always to try to keep our refrigerator and stocked up with fresh home made meals. Yet every so often I also need to rustle up a really quick meal. Something easy yet delicious that we can enjoy hot off the pan. Seviyan or Indian noodles are my one on my favorite quick cook foods. With a pack or two in the pantry I assure you, you too can feed your family a hot meal in minutes. There are so many ways of preparing the seviyan - just go with your mood and instinct.

Today I am sharing with you the most simple way of preparing the seviyan. It is a savoury preparation with the basic spices. Once ready, these seviyan are delicious hot out of the pan. Or you can pair them with pretty much anything you have going - plain yogurt, pickles, chutney, dal, vegetable curry - like I said - absolutely anything!!

1 cup roasted seviyan
4-5 curry leaves
1 medium onion, chopped fine
2 green chilies, diced
1 tbsp til tail (raw sesame seed oil)
1/8 tsp hing (asafoetida)
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp rai (mustard seeds)
1/2 tsp zeera (cumin seeds)

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the hing, then then mustard seeds and cumin seeds. 
  2. When the seeds begin to pop, add the curry leaves, green chilies, and onion.
  3. Sprinkle with salt, then cook until the onion is transparent.
  4. Add the seviyan, pour in 21/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then simmer until the water reduces by 3/4 amount.
  5. Stir, reduce heat to very low, cover the pan and cook until all the water has been absorbed by the seviyan.
  6. Turn off heat, remove cover, allow the seviyan to sit for 5 minutes, stir gently with a fork, and enjoy with rasam and your favorite chutney.
