Semiya Upma

Semiya Upma

I like semiya upma very much, it's easy and simple to make and makes a delicious breakfast or dinner.  I mostly do this for a quick and hassle free dinner during week days though DH doesn't really like any kinda of upma :(  The best thing about semiya upma is one can do lot of variations with it and enjoy as a meal, here am presenting one of the most simple version which can be done in less than 15 minutes.  



Serves ~ 2
Ingredients:

Semiya/vermicelli - 1 Cup
Onion - 1 medium
Green Chillies - 2
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Cashews - 8-10
Channa Dal - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Water - 2 cups


Method:

 1.  Heat a wok or pan add 1 tsp of oil and roast semiya until golden brown in medium flame.   Keep a eye on it to avoid it from burning, transfer the roasted semiya in a plate and keep aside.

2.  Cut onion lengthwise and slit the Chillies .

3. In the same pan heat remaining oil add cumin seeds and let them crack.  Add channa dal and roast until golden brown now add onion and green Chillies , curry leaves and sauté  until pink.  

4. Add cashews and sauté  for a minute, now add water, salt.  Once the water starts boiling add roasted semiya slowly and mix well.  Cook in low flame until all the water evaporates or semiya is cooked. 

Delicious semiya is ready, have with any chutney or sauce.   I like mine with tomato sauce :)


Have a nice day ~~
