Masala Tomato Sevai

Making sevai at home is quite easy to do, though i love to get few readymade sevai packets from India. During my last trip to India, i got some fingermillet,pearlmillet, littlemillet and tomato sevai packets to make quick dishes out of it. They are really very handy and you can dish out quick, easy breezy dishes with this ready made sevai packets. Obviously when i feel really lazy to cook or tired to cook,i will definitely pick a packet of sevai from my pantry to dish out a simple sevai dish with it.My today's post is also a kind of quick dish which i usually do with less efforts depending upon the ingredients available in my fridge especially when its comes to vegetables. This masala tomato sevai goes for colourful veggies and simple masala powders.

Since this readymade sevai are very thin when compared to the homemade ones, just drop the packet of sevai to a strainer and pass the sevai to the running water instead of soaking as per instructions given in the packet. This makes prefectly cooked sevai instead if mushy or sticky sevai. I used couple of finely chopped vegetables to make this delicious tomato sevai more healthier. Trust me a plate of this vegetable loaded masala tomato sevai makes an excellent meal to anyone. A prefect breakfast or lunch or dinner to relish happily as this dish goes for easy cooking. This quick masala tomato sevai goes for this week's blogging marathon as am running under Dorm/Single serve recipes.
