Simple Vermicelli

Awww its getting hotter and hotter out here.., And I tend to get so irritated in this season. Nowadays I'm trying to skip staying in the kitchen for too long. So heres a dish which would get done in a jiffy.., and its also very tasty.Vermicelli can be prepared in many ways. You can add in Veggies like potatoes and tomatoes to make a Veggie Vermicelli., You can add pieces of boiled egg and some Chinese sauces to make it a Chinese Vermicelli.., but I love the simple Vermicelli as the flavor of the vermicelli is not over shadowed by the Veggies or the spices.. :) So here goes the recipe of the Simple Vermicelli...

Vermicelli :

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 2 cups Roasted Vermicelli
  • 4 Cups Water
  • 1 Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 4 Green Chillies, Finely Chopped
  • 1/2 tsp each of Cumin, Mustard and Split Moong Dal
  • A Few Curry Leaves
  • A few sprigs Of Chopped Coriander Leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp oil

In a pan heat the oil and add in the Mustard, Cumin and Moong Dal. Let them splutter a bit. Later, add in the curry leaves, the chopped onions and the chopped green chillies. Fry them till the onions are pink. Add in the Vermicelli and fry for a minute. Now, add the water and add salt to taste. Give it a stir. Let the Vermicelli cook till the water evaporates completely. Transfer the contents to a serving dish. Garnish with the chopped coriander leaves and serve hot preferably with Mango pickle.. :D... Its so very easy and sooo very delicious..

Variations: You can add groundnuts, Cashew nuts and any other nuts that you are fond of. You can also add finely shredded ginger. :)
