Semiya Upma (Bambino Upma)

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

This is a very easy and fast cooking recipe. If you are in a need not add onion.....Whenever I feel lazy, I cook this. Ajay loves this dish and its my all time favorite :)

Semiya/Vermicelli - 1 cup
Onion - 1 small (chopped)
Green Chillies - 4 small
Water - 1 cup (1:1 ratio)
Garlic - 1 pod
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Channa dal - 2 tsp
Urad dal - 2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Curry leaves - handful
Coriander leaves - handful


Take a wide pan, use some cooking spray and fry the semiya until it turns golden brown in color. This way they don't stick to each other (It is optional though).

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, channa dal, urad dal, green chillies, garlic and fry for a minute, then add onions and fry till they turn transparent.

Add water, salt, red chilli powder and close the lid. After a min pour in the semiya. Mix well so that semiya dissolves in the water and close the lid. After 5 mins remove the lid, there wouldn't be much of the water left. But cook uncovered for 3-4 mins to remove stickiness.

Sprinkle with Coriander leaves.

Delicious Semiya Upma is completed within 15 mins. Since a long time I wanted to try this using Angel hair pasta.

Sending this to JIHVA - Breakfast Event hosted by Suma and the main JIHVA event started by Indira of Mahanandi.

I say this one is definitely a different version. I have never came across upma with chili powder in it. Love that color.
