Vermicelli upma|Semiya Upma

The most popular south Indian Breakfast and Dinner recipe and also i want to mention it as a quickie dish. Easy,Fast and healthy dish. Adding colorful veggies makes this dish even more interesting.  Vermicelli is so flexible, that you can show variety in it. I make Masala vermicelli, Egg drop Vermicelli, Chicken Vermicelli, Veggies Vermicelli. Also we can use it in Payasam 😉 With a slight difference in Ingredient we can show variation in this dish. I usually get Roasted Vermicelli at Indian store, which make the dish even more easier.
