Lemon Sevai

On a dull Sunday evening after 2 days of fun.hmm.thinking of getting back to work tomorrow drives me mad.Normally Sunday lunches are special and we always prefer something light for dinner. Actually more than light, something that can be made quickly.When my grinder and washer are running, of course I need to make something easy.

Lemon sevai came as a savior..It has a wonderful sour taste moreover requires no side dish.Kids will love this.Ready to cook sevai is available in stores and in 5 - 8 minutes your dinner is ready.

This is a handy recipe for beginners and it is sent to the Cooking Basics Event...
