Deciding what to make for dinner is usually a daunting task. We rarely agree on one dinner idea . The base rule is that dinner has to be light, nutritious and also tasty . I usually share what I make for lunch with you all, but I have decided that I will also share at least some of the dinners I make with you. Presenting the ‘Protein Sevai’ aka Paruppusili Vegetable Rice Noodles . A tasty and healthy dinner idea for you. You can use rice noodles or any gluten free ( thin variety)noodles.

Now, let me share the recipe.

Serves: 4
1 cup= 250 ml cup


For the Protein mix:

4-5 dry red chillies

Other Ingredients:

250 gm rice noodles

1/2 cup French Beans ( finely chopped)

1/2 cup capsicum

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

salt to taste

To temper:

2 tsp sesame oil

1/2 tsp chana dal

1 sprig curry leaves(optional)

To garnish(optional)

mint or coriander leaves

You can watch the video recipe below


1. Soak the dal with chillies for 2-3 hours. 

2. Drain excess water and grind them to a coarse paste. 

3. Add 1 tsp sesame oil, salt and steam them for 15-20 minutes. 

Bonus tip: steam vegetables placing a plate on top of the dal . I have added only beans, but you can add more vegetables of your choice.

4.Heat a kadai with sesame oil and temper with urad dal, chana dal, pinch of asafoetida, curry leaves( if adding),  capsicum, turmeric powder, steamed vegetables, salt(for vegetables) and cook for 5-7 minutes.

 Note: No need to steam capsicum.

5.Once the dal is steamed, add it to the vegetables, mix and allow it cook for another 5 minutes. 

6.Now add the sevai /noodles.

Note :  I used the readymade noodles. It needs to be soaked  in boiling water for 10 minutes and the excess water needs to be drained. 

7. Mix the sevai with vegetables and let it cook together for just 5 minutes and switch off. You can taste and adjust salt if required. 

Your delicious Protein Sevai is now ready! You can garnish with mint leaves and a dash of lemon juice if you like. It was really tasty!
