Semiya |Vermicelli Upma

semiya upma



Upmas are my favorite among breakfast recipes .Love to Red heart have all kind of varieties in upma.I have heard from many friends during my school days that they hate upma don’t why.Even till now I use to think why many people don’t like upma but not able to find the answer till now.If any one knew  the answer let me know as I’m too eager to know.For me upma means vegetable recipes.Without vegetables I don’t cook upma.For me it’s a must or atleast onion and potato.Since we are adding vegetables it’s a healthy lunch ideas too.Now a days started preparing upma in microwave and very soon will post that version too.In semiya I love to prepare upma, biriyani and curd biriyani.Just love it to the core.Will love to have any time of the day.When ever I prepare upma I will make a point to prepare little more extra and have it any time whenever I feel hungry during the day.According to me preparing upma for breakfast is a nice breakfast idea .Now moving on to the recipe.

6. Vermicelli upma is ready to serve hot.



Notes :

1. I followed the water ratio mentioned in MB’s cookbook.

2. While measuring the vermicelli don’t crush too much.Crush lightly.

3. Can add veggies of your choice.I added carrot,potato and beans.

4. The color of vermicelli I’m getting here is brown,hence my upma is also brown in color.
