How to make Sevai Upma :
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard, urad daal/white lentil, cashews & saute on medium heat.
As soon as the mustard starts crackling, add chopped green chili & vermicelli immediately. Saute on low heat.
Add in the curry leaves, boiled peas and stir fry for a few seconds. Add salt, turmeric, chili powder, chopped tomatoes, ginger and mix.
Pour in a cup of water, cover with a lid and let it simmer for 5-7 minutes. Add the lemon juice & fresh coriander and mix gently.
Switch off the flame and cover the pan and let it rest for a few minutes, so it absorbs the flavors and the extra water (if any).
Open the lid and fluff gently with a fork. Serve hot.
