As I have already mentioned in my masala sevai post, sevai is one versatile dish which can be made into so many varieties. Every time mum prepares sevai at home, she makes at least four or five different varieties out of it. Nowadays, it is even easier. We get ready made sevai which can be boiled and cooked in five minutes, something like noodles. As I was thinking of incorporating coconut in dishes, this sevai recipe was one among those ideas which came immediately. Usually home made sevai is dunked in coconut milk and relished. But this is a comparatively quick snack to put together when your kid comes home hungry.
Make sure to follow the pack instructions in cooking the sevai. Once it is cooked, drain water through a sieve and allow it to cool completely. This is the only work you need to do for this recipe. When ready to serve, mix together grated coconut, sugar and cardamom and serve immediately. You can also add milk to it for an enhanced taste. I made this on the lines of sweet aval. It was so easy to make and absolutely delicious to taste.
