Vermicelli Upma

The much awaited Pre-Monsoon rains have finally arrived and seems every one is feeling 'blessed '. Though it may be a blessing for others, for me it is a season full of mess and dunno why but it usually gets me down. The only thing i love about monsoon is enjoying piping hot vada-paav or bhajiya with a cup of tea or coffee. It is too tempting and we leave no opportunity to have this yummily sinful street snack. 
In the rainy season a lot of people look for healthy breakfast or dinner options to keep the digestive system in check . So i thought of making this Vermicelli Upma which is easy to cook, yummy , healthy and doesn't make your digestive system work hard. Take a look at the recipe:

  • 1 cup roasted Wheat Vermicelli /Semiyan
