Tomato Sevai | தக்காளி சேவை | Thakkali Sandhagai

Thakkali Sevai is a popular kongunadu recipe. Sandhagai(a type of rice noodles) is popularly known as Sevai / Idiyappam. It is a healthy guilt-free dish as it is nothing but rice sticks. This time I used ready-made idiyappam. Check this link to know :- how to make Idiyappam - Traditional method
Today I am sharing my mom's recipe which is my all time fav.. I love this especially for its spicy tangy taste.

Ingredients :-
 Ready-made Idiyappam    1 pack  
 Onions (finely chopped)   1  
 Tomatoes (finely chopped)    3  
 Curry leave   few  
 Coriander leaves    few 
 Garam masala   1 tsp  
 Turmeric powder  ¼ tsp
 Green Chillies   4
 Salt to taste
 Oil                                                1 tbsp   
 Mustard  ¼ tsp
 Urad dal    ½ tsp 
 Channa dal    ½ tsp

Method :-
1). Cook the sevai/idiyappam as per the instructions in the packet. Keep it aside.
2). Heat the oil in a pan, do the seasoning with urad dal, channa dal, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Then add the chopped onions and saute them till they become translucent.

3). Add chopped tomatoes along with salt, turmeric powder and green chillies. Saute until the tomatoes are soft and pulpy. Then add garam masala and mix well.
4). Lower the flame, add the idiyappam and combine together. Saute for about 2minutes, until the whole mixture heats through and flavors meld. Switch off and garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve hot as it is or with coconut chutney.

Notes :-
# You can use ghee instead of oil for more flavor.
