Vermicelli Upma

Deciding on the menu for breakfast is always tough,this one is a variation from regular breakfast. From my childhood I always liked it ,mom prepares delicious vermicelli/semia upma . Here is her recipe.
Vermicelli - 1 cup
Onion - 1/2 small
Green chillies - 2
Peanuts - 2tsp
Spring onion - 2tsp
Cilantro - 2tsp
Oil - 2tsp
Cumin seeds -1/4tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4tsp

1.Heat oil in a pan ,add mustard seeds,cumin seeds,peanuts and once they splutter add green chili,onion,spring onion.Fry the onions until they are transparent .
2.Add vermicelli ,salt and roast for 5 min on medium-low flame and add water.I use 1:1 ratio,if you like your upma to be soggy you can add more water.
3.Cook it for 5-8 min on medium-low heat .Garnish with cilantro & switch off the heat.
Serve hot vermicelli/semia upma  with any choice of pickle or semia by itself also tastes great.

Note:Can add tomato and any choice of veggies .


Ellerinize, emeklerinize sağlık. Çok güzel ve leziz görünüyor.
