Yet another addition to the Sevai varieties.....this is the Signature dish of my brother's wife, from my native home, Salem..... in fact, I rang her up, asked her how she makes it, and then proceeded to do so. She makes it so often and is quite versatile with this variety.
This is an unbelievably tasty & easy Sevai, extremely simple. To know about making the Sevai batter and squeezing it out, please refer here
I have not even tasted this, only heard about it all these years...first time try!
In my  family, many  people like to eat hot rice with finely cut onions sauteed in ghee....I am sure, all of them  will love the taste of  this!
Please check out my other Sevai varieties posted so far here
