Ragi Savoury Sevai

Ragi Savoury Sevai - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Ragi Savoury Sevai (Idiyappam/Nool Puttu) is one of the healthiest breakfast of Kerala. Sevai is traditionally made with rice flour, but Ragi Sevai tastes really delicious and guilt-free. We can make both sweet and savoury version of this Sevai. Ragi Sevai/Idiyappam thin noodles are made using a "Sev Sancha" and then steaming it. With very fewer ingredients we can make this flavourful Sevai in less time. Here I have made the savoury version of the Sevai and it can be called Ragi Sevai Upma also.
