Vermicelii Upma Pulav

If you are a Maharashtrian or are familiar with maharashtrian cooking  then you have to know about this cookbook called " Annapoorna" written by a well known writer Mangala Barve. This book is a must in every maharashtrian household as it has almost all types of typical maharashtrian dishes.

 My today's post for Srivalli's  CCC ( Cooking from Cookbook Challenge ) for November 4th week has been taken from the same book.

This upma is very simple and when made with addition of various veggies of your choice becomes a perfect one meal dish. On the days when you are not in a mood to make a full meal and yet want to have a light but healthy and balanced diet this is the dish you ought to make.

 It is delicious and can be made in a matter of few minutes. Even children who otherwise don't like eating veggies are all crazy about this upma as the vermicellis look like noodles and taste yummy. So now off to the recipe.






Ingredients :

2 cups ........................vermicelli ( I used wheat variety)
1 onion.......................sliced finely
1/2 cup.....................carrot ( cut into long sticks)
1/2 cup......................french beans ( cut into long slanting sticks)
1/2 cup....................capsicum ( cut thin vertically )
1/2 cup....................spring onion ( chopped )
1/2 tsp.....................green chillies ( finely chopped)
1/2 tsp.....................ginger ( finely chopped)
1/2 tsp....................mustard seeds
1/4 tsp.....................hing
salt ...................as per your taste
1 tsp..................sugar
1 tbsp....................oil for tadka




Method :

In a pan heat oil and when hot add the mustard seeds.

When the mustard splutters add hing, ginger , chillies and onions and saute till soft.

Now add the vermicelli and stir it for some time till it turns light golden.

Now add the carrots and french beans and stir for few minutes.

Then add capsicum and spring onion and saute for 2 minutes.

Finally add salt, sugar and add 4 cups hot water and cover the pan with a lid.

Cook till all the water is absorbed and the vermicelli swells wp to almost double the size.

Serve hot as it is or with any salad if you want.
