This tangy and flavourful tomato sevai is perfect for breakfast or a light lunch or dinner. It is super easy to make and taste so yummy.
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. So here you go with the tomato sevai recipe.
