Paruppu sevai recipe, Paruppu Idiyappam

Paruppu sevai/ Paruppu Idiyappam is an easy to make savory dish prepared with lentils/ dal and Indian rice noodles called as Idiyappam/ sevai. I prepared this dish with Instant idiyappam but when you prepare it with freshly made string hopper/ Idiyappam using rice flour it will be more yummy. For this recipe I used toor dal but you can make it by using moong dal as well. This recipe is from my mom, whenever she makes sevai/ Idiyappam she makes 4 varieties, lemon sevai, coconut sevai, paruppu sevai and sweet sevai. I have always seen my mom use that traditional idiyappam maker to make fresh idiyappam and it tastes heaven. This sevai can be prepared for breakfast/ dinner and needs no side dish. So let’s get to the making!
