This is a very healthy Sevai, since all the goodness of Coriander leaves and Curry leaves go into this Sevai. Colour wise and taste wise, this is very good. You can find out the details about making the Sevai batter, and making the Sevai here

Sevai made from 1 cup boiled  rice

For the Curry - Coriander  Leaves powder  
Curry leaves - 1 cup, heaped, washed and cleaned
Coriander leaves - 1 cup, heaped, washed and cleaned
Broken urad dhal - 2 tsps
Ajwain/Carom seeds - 1 tsp
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
 Red chillies - 3
Salt to taste
Cooking oil - 1/2 tsp

For seasoning
Gingely oil - 2tsps
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Broken urad dhal - 1 1/2 tsps
Channa dhal - 1 tsp

Wash the coriander and curry leaves
Drain water completely, squeeze out the excess water and put in a microwave safe bowl

Star microwaving for 40 seconds; stop for 2 minutes, then again for 40 seconds...till

they become completely shrunk and dry like this

In a pan, add 1/2 tsp oil, and add all the ingredients for powdering, except the coriander and curry leaves.

                                                        Let them turn golden in colour

Then add the curry and coriander leaves too

and roast for 2-3 minutes.

allow some time to cool down, then powder in a blender, adding enough salt.

The squeezed Sevai would have cooled down by now, sprinkle this powder on Sevai, and season the ingredients mentioned above, and gently mix the Sevai, adding little bit more salt for the sevai.

 *The measurement mentioned above for Coriander-Curry leaves powder might be a little more in quantity for  the sevai made from 1 cup rice. . It can be refrigerated and stored for the next time use.
* Some like to have Sevai with coconut chutney. That is also a nice combination. But for people, who prefer something watery, Vedikka Vitta More kuzhambu is the best accompaniment.
*same powder can be used to make Curry leaves - Coriander rice, which is again a very healthy one.


  1. Combination of greens! Healthy alright . Looks good and tastes good too. This is one of my fav sevai . Thanks for posting this . (V)
