Looking for a wholesome, quick and delicious breakfast? Don’t you worry! I got you covered with this wonderful Seviyan Upma ( Savory Vermicelli)!
Seviyan Upma ( Savory Vermicelli) is a breakfast that really requires no prior planning..other than having the vermicelli on hand! I love to load up this fast cooking dish with lots of vegetables to make it healthy and nourishing.
You don’t need any fancy vegetables here at all. You can pretty much use whatever you have on hand. The tempering is simple with curry leaves and mustard seeds. Lemon juice right at the end makes the seviyan sparkle. You don’t want to miss that lovely lemony flavor, trust me.
Upma is typically cooked with sooji/semolina. But it can be made with vermicelli, oats, dalia ( broken wheat), millets and some people also use couscous. The preparation also has many variations. The most common one being with simple tempering and roasted nuts. But as I mentioned earlier, you can use any vegetables you like to it. Any kind of spice mix like garam masala, pav bhaji masala ( yes, I’ve eaten that version), also works here very well.
To make sure your seviyyan upma is not sticky or mushy, do roast the vermicelli lightly before cooking it.
Don’t add too much water to cook this otherwise you won’t get the right fluffy texture.
This Seviyan Upma or Savory Vermicelli is fabulous for breakfast but really we eat it quite happily and greedily for lunch or dinner too. It’s a great summer meal – quick, easy, healthful and light!
