Spicy Lemon Vermicelli (serves 2)


"Sevai" or "semiya" is a south Indian favorite. Lemon Sevai is a popular dish where rice vermicelli is coated with sputtered mustard seeds, crunchy lentils, aromatic curry leaves, and is finished with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and toasted peanuts.

This citrusy noodle dish can be enjoyed hot or even at room temperature. In south India, it makes for a great "tiffin" or snack and can be eaten any time of the day. Enjoy this dish with a dollop of creamy coconut chutney for breakfast, lunch or dinner! 

What you'll need at home: 1 inch ginger, 1 lemon, 1 green chili (optional)
