Quick and easy breakfast or lunch option made using rice sevai. You can use leftover idiyappam too. This is great to pack in lunchbox or as a travel food.
I have never tried my hands on storebought sevai, even though i have seen them in super markets. I have never purchased them. But last time i thought of picking a packet to try. On that breakfast i made three types of sevai upma. I made tomato sevai, plain sevai and sweet sevai. Hubby loved the sevai and lot and told me to make these quite often.
