Vermicelli Upma

Vermicelli Upma is loved by my kids as its texture and shape is very close to noodles. Vermicelli Upma is a very quick one and healthy too. To make it interesting, I have added flat green chili or capsicum, carrots and cashew nuts to the Vermicelli Upma recipe.

I have used Olive oil to roast and stir fry the veggies which anyways is a healthier option.

Also my Vermicelli Upma recipe is no onion and no garlic recipe, to give the distinct flavors of cashew nuts and chick pea pulse used in the recipe. I like to use lemon juice in this upma recipe, as it adds flavour and Vermicelli Upma comes out tangle free too.
