Whole Wheat Semiya / vermicilli.. tis one adds up to SH's fav.. Not many are aware of wheat vermicilli's avbl in stores and they end up buying the ones made with maida. Vermicilli with fresh veggies makes up a perfect and wholesome meal for any time of the day.

Bored of repeating the usual upma style.. so attempted Vermicilli Pulav for lunch with raitha and they made a yummy meal. With few spice additions they made it really interesting.

Onion - 1 no, thinly sliced
Vegetables - 1 cup (Peppers, peas, carrot)
Green Chilli - 2 nos, slit
Ginger n Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Salt as reqd
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Hot Water - 2 cups
Oil - 1 tsp
Fresh Mint and Coriander leaves - 3 tbsp

How to make:
In a pan heat the oil add mustard once it splutters add green chillies, onions, ginger n garlic paste and saute until raw smell goes. 

Add chopped vegetables, salt, garam masala and cook for 2 mins.

Now add hot water and bring to boil, add vermicelli, mix well cover and cook for 5 mins or water is absorbed completely.

Sprinkle chopped mint and coriander leaves give a stir and serve hot with raitha.
