Mango Lemon Sevai

Sevai (Rice sticks or Rice Noodles)...Wow!!!! I would be waiting for my mom to hand over a plate full of lemon sevai after i used to come back from office in India .It used to be my best choice in tiffin varieties .Mom used to make lemon sevai most of the time , but i decided to add some flavor to it by adding "Dry Mango "..to it...Sound different right...Don't worry guys it really taste good ...Yeah for the first time i made this recipe it came out quite well .

But before i share my simple recipe for mango sevai , just wanted to share few Secret on Mangoes....My friend deepa had come across few valuable information on Mangoes and she wanted me to share it with all my blog friends.She has collected these information from few sites To here how to goes ….


"Mango (English),Aam (Hindi),Maam Pazham (Tamil) , are named as the King of Fruits .

Mangoes are native to southeastern Asia or India where they have been grown for more than 4,000 years.Mango trees are evergreens that will grow to 60 feet tall. The mango tree will fruit 4 to 6 years after planting.Mango is the world's most consumed fruit and is the number one selling fruit in the world.

India is the major mango producer of the world. India grows more mangoes than all its other fruits combined.There more than 1,000 different varieties of mangoes throughout the world.

Goodness And Well Being:

Eating mango is a healthy way to achieve your goal of five fruits and vegetables a day. Doctors recommend a minimum of 5 servings a day of fruit and vegetables to maintain good health. Just half a mango counts as one serving.

Vitamins & Minerals:

Mangoes are a rich source of Vitamin A, and have good amounts of Vitamins B and C. It also has calcium, iron, potassium and a little protein in mangoes.

Weight Reduction:

With an average calorie count of only 95 for a medium sized mango, it's no wonder smart slimmers choose mangoes. A ripe mango contains water, but little carbohydrates and no fat.

Fiber Source:

Mangoes are also high in fiber, and contain a small amount of carbohydrates, which the body converts to energy.

Antioxidants:

Dietitians recommend that we should eat large amounts of antioxidant vitamins - and mangoes are a succulent source of these.

Heart Disease:

Mangoes have more carotenoids than most other fruits - and that helps toward off colds and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease. "

Thks to my friend deepa who has pooled in some on these info and given it to us.Now comes to my part on the recipe ...

Raw Materials Required

1 pkt Sevai (Ready to eat-rice noodles)

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp urdh dal

4-5 green chilli

4-5 red chilli

Few curry leaves

2 lemons

½ cup – dry mangoes sliced

Then in a kadai add few drop of oil , add mustard seeds to it and allow it to break .Then add urdh dal , green and red chilli and curry leaves to it .Allow to aroma to spread and then add the cooked rice sevai to it and mix it well .Then add salt to it and add the dry mango pieces and mix it well .Remove it from the gas.After 5 mts add the lemon extract ( from 2 lemons) and mix it well .
