Rulanva Shevai/ Rawa Sevai/Rawa String hoppers
Normally Shevai is made with Rice back in Mangalore. I have experimented with Rawa/Rulanv and it’s a huge success at home. There is no soaking grinding rice and difficult procedures. You can make shevai anytime you wish. If you do not have a Shevai Dante(sevai pressing machine) do not worry you can do it with Chakkuli/Chakli machine.
Without Much a do I will post the recipe for Rulanva Shevai/Rawa Sevai/Rawa String Hoppers
Coconut 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Water approx. -4 cups
In a grinder jar take 2 tbsp coconut add little water and grind it into a very smooth paste.
Transfer this paste in a deep bottom pan and switch on the gas/flame, immediately add 2 cups of water and allow it to boil.
Once boiled add salt 1.5 tsp or salt to taste and 2 cups rawa. Mix it well using a ladle to form a soft dough. Switch of flame.
Now knead the Rawa mixture and make small cylindrical balls out of the mixture.
Place these on a plate.
Heat the steamer or pressure cooker (without placing the weight)and place the plate with the Rawa balls and steam it for 15-20 minutes.
Once you put off the flame of the steamer, immediately press it into noodles. If not the steamed rawa balls tend to harden a little as they cool and it gets difficult to press them.
Use a traditional pressing machine or muruku/chakuli press to press the noodles and lay on a wet and drained clean white cloth .(this is done so that the steam is escaped and the Shevai does not stick with each other).
Use fine Rawa for the Shevai.
There is no need to use coconut also in the recipe. I like the flavor of coconut so I have added 2 tbsp.
