I learned this recipe from my MIL who always stocks up her pantry with this semiya. Ever since I found out about the existence of such semiya(ragi), It occupies most of the space(not weight ) in my suitcase when I travel away from home. Yes, I buy loads of them and try to make it for breakfast atleast on the alternate weekends(mostly saturdays). It goes very well with tomato chutney or with any coconut based chutney. So if you see these packets in your nearby groceries, when you go shopping next time, get hold of them and try this recipe. You get a good feeling of having something healthy for your breakfast or dinner, I sure did.
Ingredients:Ragi Semiya - 200gm packet.
1 medium onion
2 green chillies
1 medium tomato
4 pods of garlic
1 tsp of lemon juice(optional)
For tempering:mustard - 1tsp
urad dhal 1 tsp
channa dhal - 1tsp
few curry leaves
MethodDip the semiya in a large bowl of water for 2 mins. Drain the water completly and place in an idli tray and steam it for 10 mins.(exactly as we do for Idli's)
Remove to a plate and allow to cool.
Finly chop the onion, green chillies, garlic and tomato
In a wide skillet/pan add 2 tsp of oil and when its hot add the tempering ingredients.
When the mustard splutters add the chopped onion , green chillies and garlic and fry till its cooked well.
Now add the tomatoes and fry till its mushy. Add salt as per taste.
Now add the cooked ragi semiya/vermicelli and stir well till its evenly coated with the masala.
