Vermicelli/Semiya upma

Happy Independence Day to all my friends!!

Celebrating this special occasion with a dish having the colours of our tricolor flag!                     This is an easy and quick breakfast to prepare during busy mornings..I also make this during weekends..It is an easy one to prepare in almost n ime..I like to add colour and more taste to the dish by adding different veggies making it more healthy..Here goes the recipe for simple Semiya Upma..

Ingredients (Serves 2)

Vermicelli/Semiya - 1 cup
Water - 1 3/4 cups
Carrot and Peas - 1/2 cup
Ginger paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Onion - 1 small chopped
Tomato - 1 small chopped
Green chilli - 1
Mustard - 1 teaspoon
Urad dhall - 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves
Oil - 2 teaspoons


Dry roast the vermicelli in a pan for about 3 minutes until it gives away the raw smell..Remove it from the pan and keep aside..In the saucepan, add two spoons of oil and do the seasoning with mustard,urad dhall and curry leaves..Then add the chillies,onion and ginger paste and saute for about two minutes until the onions turn translucent..Add the tomato,carrot and peas and saute again..Add the water and bring it to a boil..Finally add the vermicelli and give a stir..Simmer until the water gets absorbed and forms a thick mass..Garnish with coriander leaves..

Serve with coconut chutney,or chutney of your choice..

Since I found the colour of the ingredients used resembling the colours of our National flag,am sending this to Pooja's Independence Day Event..

Also sending this to WBB:Combi Breakfast hosted by LAtha this month..
