Vermicelli Upma

Both, my husband Naveen and me are not any staunch lovers of breakfast cereals. So, I am always in search of breakfast recipes that are healthy and can also be made in very little time. Here's one such recipe that I learnt from my mom. Its fast and easy to make too. Enjoi!


1 cup Vermicelli
1 small Onion finely chopped
1/4cup Carrot chopped into very small cubes
1/4cup Green Peas
4-5 Curry leaves
3strands Cilantro(coriander leaves)
1/2 tsp haldi
1 tsp mustard seeds
1-2 green chillis chopped
1 tsp cashew/chana dhal mixture
1 tsp sugar
2-3 tsp oil
1 tsp lime juice
salt as per taste


1. Heat kadai on the stove and dry roast the vermicelli until the vermicelli turns light brown in colour. saute frequently. keep aside.
Note: Roasted vermicelli that is readily available in the market can also be used and in that case, step 1 can be ignored.

2. Heat oil in Kadai and add mustard seeds. After the mustard seeds splutter add haldi, green chillis, curry leaves and the cashew/chana dal mixture

3. Add the chopped onions and fry till they are transparent.About 3-4 mins

4. When the onions are almost done, add the peas and carrots mixture. fry for 1-2 mins, sauting frequently.

5. Add 1.5 cups of water to the above mixture and let it boil until the peas and carrots are cooked. Add salt and sugar to the boiling mixture as per taste.

6. Add vermicelli and let it cook for another 2 mins until the water evaporates.

7. Remove front stove, add lime juice and mix well. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot!
