Vermicelli Upma a popular south indian breakfast and north Indian appetizer/snack.Loaded with vegetables and tempered with kadi patta / curry leaves and mustard seeds is a light but filling snack.
Also know as Semiya Upma, is a adaptation form the popular south indian breakfast recipe of Upma. Upma traditionally made from semolina and cooked with various vegetables is a healthy as well as easy to digest breakfast recipe.In this recipe we make it with vermicelli.
This recipe may have originated in the south of India, but equally loved in most parts of the country. Cook it with you favorite preferred vegetables and enjoy a lovely breakfast.

My kids and family loves it. I like semolina Upma and vermicelli Upma both likewise. You can add as many vegetables as you wish. My personal favorite are potato , carrot, beans, green peas onion and for the lovely crunch fried peanuts too. These days i add roasted seeds like sunflower seeds and flax seeds too.I just dont feel by breakfast complete with the seeds added to it.But if you dont like the addition of seeds then please omit. Its completely optional. So try this amazing breakfast and do share you views in the comments below. Your comments inspire me to think and churn fresh new ideas and recipes.
