Vermicelli or semiya look like fine noodles when cooked. They are often used to make seviyan kheer, the sweet made with milk and roasted vermicelli. Vermicelli upma or semiya upma is a savoury, nutritious dish that can be assembled quickly if you have cut, boiled vegetables at hand. You can use just about any veggies you like for eg. green beans, chopped carrots, peas, mushrooms, potato etc. I usually make this for breakfast and also pack in the kiddies lunch box. It tastes good even when cold.
Here is my semiya upma recipe:
This recipe makes 4 generous serves.
This is a delicious and quick breakfast recipe and tastes better than regular upma. It is also perfect for kids’ lunchboxes as it tastes good even when at room temperature.
