Chef’s Tips

1) Optional – can add little chopped ginger in the Vedi MorKuzhambu for a refreshing  taste.

2)  While sautéing the vegetables for the Sevai, keep the flame in sim to avoid discolouring.

3)  While squeezing the lemon juice add 2 pinches of salt ,and mix well .  The lemon juice will not become bitter.
