Vegetable idiyappam


Vegetable sevai or idiyappam is a popular breakfast meal in south India. It is a colourful, flavourful and quick-to-make recipe loaded with vegetables.

The yummy dish is convenient for bachelors and working women as frozen vegetables can be used.

Saute till the peanuts become crunchy. 6) Add capsicum, carrot and peas. If you are using cauliflower or potato, par boil it before adding. 7) Add turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt. Saute for 3 minutes. Let this become crunchy. 8) Add the cooked idiyappam and curry powder (I added 21/2 tbsp). 9) Add the ground ingredients and mix well. 10) Garnish with coriander leaves before serving. You can also add 1-2 tbsp of grated coconut.
