Easy to make 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.

  • 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.

  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.
