- 1 cup Roasted Vermicelli (200 grams)
- 2 tbsp Oil
- 1 tsp Rai
- 1 tsp Urad Dal
- 2 Green Chillies (chopped)
- 1 inch Ginger (grated)
- 1 medium-sized Onion (finely chopped)
- 1 small Green Capsicum (finely chopped)
- 1 sprig Curry Leaves
- 3 cups Water
- Salt as per taste
Heat oil in a pan.
Add rai and urad dal.
When rai splutters and urad dal turns light brown, add ginger, curry leaves, and chillies.
Fry till the raw smell of ginger goes.
Add onions and fry for a few minutes. When it turns soft, add the capsicum. You can add any other vegetables of your choice.
After it is cooked, add 3 cups of water and salt.
Let the water start boiling on medium flame.
Then add the roasted vermicelli.
When all the water gets absorbed, stir again so that the vermicelli/semiya does not get stuck to the pan.
Your semiya upma is ready. Serve with coconut chutney.
