I made and pictured this dish long back but never get to post it, as I thought that the picture was not so good. But today somehow I felt like blogging about this dish as this was my Brother's favorite breakfast item. As a matter of fact he would have this any time of the day. He had asked me couple of times about why I have not blogged this recipe for which I answered that 'there's nobody out there who would be interested in this one other than you'....
Much to the irony, he left home having Semiya Kichadi (Amma made this on his request) as breakfast on the day fate took him away from us.
I did'nt even name the picture properly while storing, so had to spent almost an hour digging through all the folder in my archives and was so happy to have found it atlast.
So here goes the recipe...in the memory of my dear brother....
1 cup Semiya/Vermicelli
1 large onion
4 pods of garlic
2 green chillies
handful of mint (optional)
1 cup mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, beans, potatoes)
oil and salt to taste.
Dice the vegetables to small cubes
Crush the garlic and ginger.
Slit the green chillies and thinly slice the onions
Roast the semiya/vermicelli in about a tblsp of oil under medium flame, till slightly brown.Keep aside
In the same pan add 2 tblsp of oil. Add the crushed garlic and ginger, sliced onions, green chillies,mint and curry leaves. Saute till the onions wilt and turn translucent.
Add the chopped veggies and salt. Stir well for about 3 mins.
Now add 1 1/2 (one and half) cup of water and close with a lid.
When the water starts to boil add the roasted vermicelli and cook till all the water is absorbed.
