Semiya (Vermicelli) Upma


Semiya - 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Poppy seeds - 2 tsp
Popu mix (cumin seeds, mustard seeds, urad dal) - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 stem
Ghee - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Green chillies - 2 (or as required)
Cashew nuts - 10

  • Heat ghee in a pan and fry semiya till they turn brown color. It will help semiya not stick to each other when making upma. Keep it aside.
  • In the same pan, heat oil and add chopped chillies, poppy seeds, popu mix and curry leaves. Heat for 2mins. (optional - we can add some vegetables if we want).
  • Add cashews and fry for another 2 mins. Now pour water and bring it to boil.
  • Add semiya to the boiling water and cook until semiya is soft or until water evaporates.
  • Serve with sugar/ketchup.
