Many at times at home, we get confused in making breakfast especially when everyone at your home curse you when you make dosa and idly repeatedly :) One of the regional foods that got my attention is Coimbatore cuisine when you are in trouble especially in weekends the puli sevai,, as its time consuming and loved by kids as well. There is lot of varieties as well in sevai, which I’ll be posting it very soon.

Puli Sevai interesting is it?? As many of my readers is requesting for breakfast recipes, this being my first unique breakfast in my blog. Puli Sevai is normally made by making idiyappam first and then making into a puli sevai, however it takes much time as preparing the idiyappam and then the tamarind paste. So, here is the easiest and simple recipe which is made out of readymade sevai.


  • Instant Sevai Mix - 250 gms
  • Water- 3 Cups
  • Tamarind- Big Lemon Size
  • Channa Dal- 2 Tspn
  • Urud Dal- 1 Tspn
  • Dry Red Chillies- 3 Nos
  • Turmeric Powder- ¼ Tspn
  • Asafetida- ½ Tspn
  • Gingely Oil- 2 Tspn
  • Mustard- 1 Tspn
  • Curry Leaves- Few
  • Peanuts- ¼ Cup
  • Salt- To Taste


  • Add the sevai to the boiling water and let it stay in the water for 5 minutes. Drain the water and set aside the sevai.
  • Make a thick paste of tamarind and keep aside.
  • In a separate pan, pour oil, add mustard,curry leaves,peanuts,channa dal,urud dal,dry red chillies,turmeric powder, asafetida and fry for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the tamarind paste and salt to it and let it boil until it becomes a thick paste (this serves as pulikachal).
  • Add the pulikachal to the sevai and mix well.

"You can add green chilies while making the tamarind paste if you want to make it spicy.

Adding peanuts is optional"
