Sevai upma is quick south indian breakfast recipe and my kids love it. I make it quite often and my baby loves its noodle like texture. It is easy breakfast recipe and ready in minutes. Another vermicelli recipe which I make is kheer or pudding and will share the recipe soon.

Serves: 2-3
Preparation time: 8 mins.
Cooking time: 15-20 mins.


1 ½ cups sevai

1 green chili, chopped
1 ½ cups water
½ cup Vegetables of your choice (carrots, peas, beans)
salt as required

  1. In a pan which is medium hot, roast the vermicelli until golden brown. Keep aside. If using already roasted vermicelli, you can skip this step .
  2. Reheat the same pan and put in the oil. Once oil is hot, add in mustard and cumin seeds.
  3. As they splutter, add in onions and saute till browned.
  4. Now, add in curry leaves, urad and chana daal and green chillies.
  5. Add in the vegetables and salt. Cook the vegetables until tender.
  6. Pour in water into the pan, and once the water begins to boil add in the roasted vermicelli.
