Lemon Sevai is a popular breakfast recipe from southern India using Instant Vermicelli Rice noodle.

Sevai is rice vermicelli. Traditionally it is home made from scratch. But in todays times, we don’t have the luxury of time to do that.

I remember in my native Salem, Idiappam or rice vermicelli will be prepared from scratch and used to be served as breakfast.

I love sevai recipes as they are so light for breakfast and so quick to make when instant rice vermicelli or instant sevai is used.

There are many brands of sevai, I have used Anil and bambino brand and both works for this recipe.

I remember my friends who eat plant based love Lemon rice. This is a sister recipe of Lemon rice, if you replace sevai with cooked rice.
