When Vermicelli is in vogue ... Upma made of Vermicelli (Breakfast)... made on 30th March 2012

 What did I use:

  1. Semiya / Indian Vermicelli ~ 1 1/2 cups ( broken into small pieces )
  2. Onions ~ 1 No (Big sized )
  3. Green chillies ~ 3-4 Nos
  4. Chopped ginger ~ 1 tsp
  5. Cashew Nuts ~ 10 Nos
  6. Raisins ~ 10 Nos
  7. Turmeric powder ~ 1/4 tsp
  8. Dry red chillies ~ 2 Nos
  9. Urad Dal / Uzhunnu ~ 1 1/2 tbsp
  10. Mustard seeds
  11. Oil
  12. Salt
      How did I cook:
  1. First heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and roast the vermicelli / semiya in a low flame till the vermicelli becomes golden brown in color. Do stir continuously otherwise it may get burnt. Roasting will prevent vermicelli from sticking to each other.
  2. Then cook semiya by adding enough water along with enough salt in a medium flame for about 8 minutes or till the vermicelli becomes soft. Then drain it in a colander.
  3. Meanwhile heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it crackles, add dry red chillies, urad daal, cashew nuts and raisins, and fry for 1-2 minutes. Then add finely chopped onions, chopped green chillies, chopped ginger and turmeric powder and saute till onions becomes transparent.(Note: At this point, if you want then you can even add some grated carrot and finely chopped beans and fry for 5-10 minutes )
  4. Then finally add cooked vermicelli and mix it nicely. Remove from the flame after 2 minutes.
