Vermicelli Upma/Semiya upma

Vermicelli upma is yet another variation with vermicelli(apart from the sweet version).This is nutritious too as it is full of veggies and it makes a good breakfast or snack item which takes very less preparation time :)

Ingredients -
onion(1 medium)
green chillies(2-3)
green peas
mustard seeds
cumin seeds/jeera
curry leaves/kadipatta
turmeric powder

Method -
Cook the vermicelli in boiling water till they are half done.
Drain the water out and rinse the vermicelli under cold water so that they don't become sticky.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan.
Add hing,mustard seeds.Once they splutter add cumin seeds and curry leaves.
Add the chopped green chillies,onion and a pinch of turmeric powder.
After a min add the finely chopped veggies.
Add salt and cover and cook till the veggies are soft.
Finally add the cooked vermicelli,add salt and mix.
Serve hot vermicelli upma with tea :-)
