Semiya /Vermicili Upma
Like Rava Upma this one is also one of my comfort foods. Readymade Roasted vermicelli's and Frozen Vegetables makes this dish less time consuming yet delicious.
Vermicelli/Semiya-1 cup Roasted
Frozen vegetables - 1
Water- 1 1/2 cup
Urad Dal-1 tsp
Curry leaves- a few
Fresh grated coconut-1/2 cup
Salt- to taste
Cashews-1/2 cup to garnish
Dry Roast the semiya until golden brown.Set
In a pan add oil,mustard seeds,urad
dal,red chillies,green chillies and curry
leaves.When mustard seeds splutters add the
frozen Vegetables and saute for 3-4 minutes in
Add the water and salt and on high heat bring
it to a rolling boil.When the water boils
reduce heat to low and add the roasted
Vermicelli/semiya and stir occasionally until
all the water is absorbed and Vermicelli/Semiya
is cooked. Add the Grated coconut and Cashews.
Remove from Flame and Cover the Upma with a lid .
Let it sit 10 -15 minutes.
Serve hot with coconut chutney.
Note-You can also use 1 cup of Fresh Vegetables
if you prefer.
