Vermicelli Upma Recipe | Semiya Upma

vermicelli upma

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.

Do tag #rachnacooks if you make this and share pictures. I would love to know if you tried out this easy semiyan upma recipe.

This is one of my favorite for breakfast. But I have never added Chan dal, curry leaves and vegetables. I just used to add potatoes.
Shall try your recipe.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh, she does. Sounds nice. My kids dislike cabbage hence I leave that out. They do like cabbage sabzi though.

A good substitute for Maggi 🙂

Maggi was a rare dish in my home, anyway. 🙂 And the tastes are very different. This is more similar to the hakka noodles I prepare at home, just more Indian.
