How to Make Seviyan Upma

  • Roast vermicelli in a kadai with some salt till a little red in colour.
  • Add 2 tbsp of ghee to it. Roast for some more time.
  • Once it turns reddish in colour, add 3/4 cup of hot water. Mix it very well. (Note: water should be less than the vermicelli or it will become very soggy). Remove it from the gas after a minute. Keep aside in a flat plate.
  • In the same kadai, heat oil and add mustard seeds. Once they pop, add urud dal, chana dal, red chillies, curry leaves and mix well. When it's pale red, remove.
  • Add all the vegetables except tomatoes. Mix well.
  • Now add the green chillies, turmeric and salt and mix well.
  • Add the tomatoes and fry for 1 minute.
  • Then add water - the water should be just as much as the vegetables, not less. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Now add the seviyan. Mix well and heat for a minute.
  • It can be eaten with any chutney or sauce.
