Rice Noodles/Shavige/ Sevai

It is one of the traditional South Indian home made rice noodles which is called “shavige” in Kannada & Sevai in Tamil. Usually this is prepared using parboiled rice. It is served with chicken curry (chicken sambar) or coconut kheer (kai haalu).
  • Parboiled Rice/Usna Chawal /Kusubalakki: 2 cups
  • Water:  to soak the rice
  • Salt: 1/2 tsp
  • Coconut (grated): 4 tbsp or Coconut Milk Powder: 2tbsp
  • Oil: to grease
  • Shavige hollu/Sevai press/noodles press with small holes.
  • Wash & soak rice in water overnight (let the water be 1 inch above the rice).
  • Grind rice & coconut to a smooth paste with little water but it should be thick batter consistency like idli batter.
  • Add salt, mix well.
  • Grease idli plates with oil & pour the batter into plates.
  • Steam in pressure cooker for 10 minutes without using weight.
Note: I used cooker pan instead of idli plate. Grease oil to a pan & pour 1  1/2 inch batter to a pan & steam it for 15-20 minutes without weight.

  • Noodles should be pressed when it is hot, so take required dough & close the lid to keep the rest warm. Cold dough is very difficult to press.
  • Wet the noodles press & spoon to avoid the dough sticking to it.
  • Fill the dough to the noodles press.
  • Press out the noodles into oval or round shape overlapping 4-6 layers of circle.
  • Repeat the same with rest of the dough & make sure to leave gap between each noodles.
  • Allow it to cool a bit.
Note: Don’t cover the noodles as soon as pressed it should be left open.
  • Rice noodles is ready to serve with chicken curry or coconut kheer (kai haalu).
