Ragi Sevai Uppuma

We hit the beach yesterday evening (Sunday, 12 April 2009)…. Easter day..…We found some place to sit comfortably and peacefully….my children came armed with their beach play set..they were having gala time…throwing sand at each other….making big mountains….house and whatever they could imagine….After they got bored with the sand, my hubby and children rushed towards the water to enjoy the cold water touching their small feet … drenched in the water from top to bottom…..My hubby’s school mate and his family met us up the beach..….We spend some time together and departed when it started to become dark….We snacked on some sondal and masala pori….on the way back home……

Prepared Ragi Sevai uppuma for dinner…A quick and easy one…..

To make Ragi Sevai uppuma:

1. Soak the Ragi Sevai in water for 2-3 minutes. Add salt to this water while soaking. Sieve it so that water drains off completely. Make sure the Ragi Sevai should not become more soggy. Keep it aside. After say 5 minutes, pressure cooker it for 5 minutes.

2. Chop 2 onions and slit 2 green chilies, 2-3 red chilly. Can also add some groundnut and pottu (chutney) kadalai. Some curry leaves for seasoning.

3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadai, add 1 tbsp mustard seed, few uzhudu dhal seed, few kadala paruppu and groundnut and pottu (chutney) kadalai. Sim the burner so that these seeds do not get charred. When the seeds change the color to light brown, add 2 onions chopped, slit 2 green chilies, 2-3 red chilly and fry it until they are done. Add curry leaves and stir fry.

4.Then add the cooked Ragi Sevai to the above mix, and mix it well thoroughly using fork(sim the burner)…….. Voila, Ragi Sevai uppuma!!!!!

  11. @Sakshi, My cook is fine…she had some commitments at didn’t turn up for 2 days…Then once when I get involved in cooking, then no one can stop me…just like blogging…get addicted to the task and drive my whole family crazy…Yep, my hubby is the happiest person on earth when my cook doesn’t turn up…he goes “Bhagiyam, korey nallu kazhiju home food kittinu…”…then calls me up or sms me with “thank you notes…”…”nice lunch!!!”….In fact, he begs me to give leave every Sunday…
    Happy Vishu to you and your family too….
