Bambino Vegetable upma/ Vegetable Vermicelli Upma
This upma is very common in south indian households. Its always bambino brand which is used mostly. Most of the time people don't say vermicelli they say bambino upma. I remember there used to be a recipe on the packet which i don't see now. Now we are getting fried vermicelli too making our life much easier. This upma husband made when i was sick but i was not that sick not to take the pictures ;).
Vermicelli 1 cup
Ghee 2 tbsp
Rai 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/4 tsp
Udad dal 1/2 tbsp
Chana dal 1/2 tbsp
Hing a pinch
Ginger 1/2 inch pc
Green chillies 2 chopped
Curry leaves few
Onions 1 chopped
Take ghee in a deep pan. Add vermicelli and saute for a while until vermicelli changes colour. Take if off the flame and keep aside.
Add oil to the ghee. Add rai seeds and cumin. Once they flutter, add channa dal and udad dal.
Saute for a while and add cashew and hing. Then add ginger, curry leaves and green chillies. Saute for a minute.
Add onions and fry for another minute. Add salt. Don't fry the onions to brown colour. We want the onions to be white only.
Now add all the veggies. Again saute for 1-2 minutes.
For 1 cup of semiya add 1 1/2 cup of water.
Once water boils add semiya. Mix well and reduce the flame.
Cover and cook until all the water dries up.
Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
