 Vermicelli upma is quick and easy tasty breakfast. Adding tomatoes brings out the tangy flavour and it you prefer adding veggies then also it would taste sooperb. In case if  roasted semiya is not available, then you can dry roast it in pan. But make sure you roast it under medium or low flame in order to avoid over roasting. This is perfect and can have with a touch of your favourite pickle.


1 Cup Roasted Semiya

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

2 tsp Grated Ginger.

Few spins of Curry leaves.

2 tsp Urad dal

1 Chopped Onion

2 Chopped Tomato.

1/2 tsp Turmeric pd

11/2 tsp Chilly pd

2 Cups Water.

2 tsp Ghee (optional)

Salt to taste.


Heat oil in a kadai. Add mustard and urad dal...let it splutter and at the same time let the dal turns brown. Add ginger and curry leaves followed by onions. Add salt and stir fry till its raw smell disappears. Add tomatoes and powders. Cover with a lid and sim for 5 min. Now you can see the mixture turns semi thick mushy type. Now add water and bring to boil. Put the roasted semiya and cover them. Let it cook till all the water is absorbed. Drizzle ghee on top and switch off the flame. If u need garnishing then add chopped coriander leaves.
