Tamarind Sevai/Sevai Puliyodharai

Sevai is nothing its just rice vermicelli which is quite popular in Tamilnadu. Though this vermicelli can be prepared easily with rice flour at home, store bought sevai are easily available to dish out some fabulous easy breezy dishes with it. Store bought sevai are seriously very handy as you can prepare dishes either for your breakfast or your dinner. I have already cooked couple of dishes with different vegetables and ingredients. However i love both lemon sevai and tamarind sevai very much. They are just prefect to pack in anyone's lunch box especially in a kid's lunch box. Yes if you have homemade tamarind paste in in fridge or instant tamarind rice powder,  trust me this dish gets quickly than you can imagine..

And this instant tamarind sevai calls for cooked sevai with store bought tamarind powder which is quite simple and easy to prepare to pack quickly in a lunch box than you can imagine.But still you can prepare this same dish with homemade tamarind rice paste as well. A prefect meal to serve along with your favourite side dish, we enjoyed this dish thoroughly for our weekend lunch.

Tamarind powder and peanuts are two of my favorite additions. Must have tasted great together in the sevai.

I've never made tamarind sevai/ semya - I don't know why!! I made lemon sevai quite often - will have to make this version next time.

I have never used tamarind rice powder so far. Sounds like a good pantry essential. Making it with Rice sevai is superb.
