Delightful Vermicelli Masala Upma


This is a classic breakfast you can have on any day,very colorful and can be made in a jiffy.A perfect one pot meal when u have unexpected guests.Kids love it too as it resembles noodles and healthier too with the veggies we can add to it. There are two types of vermicelli plain and roasted, the plain version tastes better and we can roast it ourselves. This dish is prepared in every indian home and if you havent you must try it ...

Ingredients
  • 1 cup semiya/vermicelli
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 1 chopped potato
  • 4 sliced green chillies
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 1 chopped carrot
  • 1/4 tsp cummin / jeera seeds
  • 1/4 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 tsp urad dal
  • 1 spring curry leaf
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
Procedure
Heat 1/2 tbsp oil in a large pan. Add vermicelli and fry in medium flame till its golden brown.Keep aside.In the same pan heat another 1 tbsp oil and add cummin,mustard,urad dal and fry till mustard splutter.Now add onion,green chilli and curry leaves and fry for a minute.
Next add the veggies except tomato and mix nicely and cover it for it to cook.Once all the veggies are soft add tomato and cilantro and fry for a minute.Add 2 cups water and salt. Once it boils add the vermicelli and mix nicely till all the water is evaporated and vermicelli is cooked. Serve hot with a dash of ghee.

Note: 
1.Take care not to overcook in excess water else it would become too mushy
2.You can add more veggies like chopped cauliflower, sweet corn, broccoli to make it more tasty and colorful.
3.You can make the same process with rava instead of semiya for masala upma, more water needs to be added though

I love upma! One of my favorite breakfast options. But we cook it from sooji/rava and devoid of so many flavorful vegetables. Yours looks so much more better and I am sure the same can be said of the taste too :) Happy sunday, Satya :)

Absolutely favorite breakfast on a holiday ! too good, heavy and tasty. I would sleep to glory after having this and then coffee. Too good :)

I generally buy the roasted ones. But I will try with the plain ones and then roast them.
