A quick and yummy dish for breakfast or snack!
"Shavige " a kannada word means " vermicelli/Sevai"


  •  4 cups vermicelli(I use Dragon shavige/concorde shavige as there is no necessity to fry before using shavige.If using MTR,you need to fry and then immerse the shavige in water.)
  • 3 tsp Refined Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • a pinch of asafoetida
  • 1 tsp Urad Dal
  • 1 tsp Chana Dal
  • ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 6-7 Green chillies
  • Few curry leaves
  • Onion - 2 finely chopped
  • 1 Green Bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot nicely cut
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • Chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Boil water in a vessel and add the vermicelli in boiling water and let it stay for five to seven minutes.Drain the excess water and keep it ready.(Do not let it soak for a long time as the vermicelli will become soggy)
  • Heat oil in a saucepan. 
  • Add the mustard seeds, urad dal,chana dals,a pinch of asafoetida. Saute till mustard seeds sputters. 
  • Add the green chillies and curry leaves, saute for a few seconds 
  • Add the chopped onions and bell peppers. Saute till onions are soft and bell peppers are cooked through.
  • Add the turmeric powder and saute again.
