    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    This is often considered picnic food in Tamilian households all across India. These southeaster natives make fresh rice noodles (sevai) to take on picnics and long road trips. In a laboriously precise process, hand-cranked noodle machines yield strands that melt in your mouth. NOTE: Rice noodles are found in Asian grocery stores and some large supermarkets. If you cannot find fresh rice noodles for this recipe, the flavors and textures of dried cooked noodles are quite similar to the "real deal". Do not overcook rice noodles because they will become mushy. I did it the first time I made them. Not good! Immediately drain noodles in a colander, and run cold water through them to stop the cooking process. Per chef #672818’s kind review, I double-checked my Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking cookbook where I got this and it’s precisely how the recipe’s written. I have paid close attention to the split pea cook time and resulting texture: First, keep in mind that chana dal (yellow split lentils) are much smaller than your standard green “split pea” and will therefore cook much faster. Even so, making the recipe as indicated yields crunchy, but perfectly edible lentils. If you want them softer, you can soak them for an hour or so first, then drain well. Also, heating the leftovers the next day will give you the same result as I found out. ;)

      Love this recipe... one note though, I assume that the step in which you soak or cook the chana dal was accidentally left out. I can't imagine that you eat split peas that are raw aside from 1 minute of stir-frying.
