Semiya Upma with Vegetables | Vegetables Vermicelli Upma

Semiya Upma with Vegetables, a quick & easy to make breakfast/tiffin with vermicelli and vegetables. Few weeks before, when i had shared this simple vermicelli upma in Instagram, many have requested the recipe, that's when i realized that this recipe is still not in the blog. 

It happens all the time, some how i always skip the simple recipe to post here, to be honest, it not even crossed my mind to post such a simple recipes. Guess, it's time to change that habit :-) Like i have already said, it's one of the easiest recipe to make in a jiffy. 

Back in Amma's place, she often make this as evening tiffin alone with coffee/tea for a long day or when we feel little hungry in the evening.  It tastes awesome with sip of tea/coffee. Do give it a try if you haven't already. 
Yesterday the temperature here was above 5c after almost 3 months and it was such a pleasant day  to be outside(with all those winter jackets of course  :-)). It's really amazing how our body adapts to the environment.
Back in days, when i was newly married, even the Tiruppur cold in December made me sick and had cold & fever for a few days. That reminds me of the quote " No such things as bad weather only bad clothing" . Realized how true is that here in this winter !!! Ok, now let's check out the semiya upma recipe.

  • Roasted semiya gives non-sticky and fluffy upma. 
  • In addition to carrot, beans can also be used in this upma.
  • Adding sugar balance out the taste, so don't skip it.
