SEMIYA UPMA |VERMICELLI UPMA |SOUTH INDIAN BREAKFAST RECIPES

EASY TO MAKE BREAKFAST/EVENING TIFFIN

  semiya-upma After a long time i am sitting and writing a post. Still feeling very lazy to come back to routine after a wonderful holiday for a week in  Thailand. I must thank all my friends who visited my blog and posted their encouraging comments , even when i miss their  wonderful posts.
Two years back, one day  when i was talking with my friends in the evening, and  discussing about the dinner plan,i told i am planning to make semiya upma,and  one among the group told that making upma with semiya/vermicelli is totally new to her. Somehow that incident came to my mind yesterday while i was making this for my breakfast. Since blogging was in the back of my mind ,as to what to post, i clicked while making the upma  and here comes the recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
SEMIYA/VERMICELLI 1 AND 1/2 CUP
WATER 3 CUPS
CARROT
BEANS 5-6 
ONION
GREEN CHILLI
OIL 2 TSP
MUSTARD SEEDS 1/4 TSP
URAD DAL 1/2 TSP
CHANNA DAL 1 TSP
CURRY LEAVES FEW
SALT AS NEEDED

 
semiya-upma METHOD:
  • Dry roast the vermicelli till they become nice golden brown.
  • I skipped this stage since i bought the roasted vermicelli.
  • Chop the onions and green chili lengthwise and the veggies into fine pieces.

  • In a kadai add oil and throw in the mustard seeds, urad dal, channa dal ,chilies and the curry leaves.
  • When the mustard splutter and the dals turn nice golden brown colour, add the onions.
  • Saute till it turns pink.

  • Allow the water to boil and let the veggies cook in that water.
  • Keep the flame in medium.
  • When the veggies become soft(it will approximately take 7-9 mins) add the roasted semiya/vermicelli.
  • Keep the flame in low.
  • Mix gently and put off the flame when the semiya gets cooked.

  • Serve very hot with any pickle or coconut chutney.
  • I always love to have with pickle and a hot cup of filter coffee.
  • This combo will taste heaven when the hot upma follows a sip of filter coffee.

NOTE.
  1. You can add any veggie of your choice.(green peas and potatoes will go well)
  2. Red chili can be replaced with green chili.
  3. You can add roasted cashew nuts to make it rich.
