I just love Bambino vermicelli or semiya, one for its quality, two for its packaging and the recipes on the back of the cover. I tried this simple tasy semiya pulao from one of those recipes, loved both the look and the taste of the dish. Will do this more often.
Bambino vermicelli- 1 cup
mixed veggies- 1 cup
(i used potatotes,carrots u can add green peas,fresh beans and other veggies too)
oil - 2 tsp
coriander leaves- handful
mint leaves- handful
spices (shahjeera, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon)
salt to taste
Curd- 1 cup
onion- 1 big
green chillies- 1
coriander leaves- a few
salt to taste
1. First boil 3 cups of water add 1tsp salt and 1 tsp oil and 1 cup of vermicelli. After vermicelli is cooked, strain in a colander and and run cold water through it to prevent the vermicelli sticking to each other.
2. Meanwhile Chop the required veggies, onions, green chillies and tomatoes.
|carrots and potatoes chopped|
|onions and tomatoes chopped for pulao and raita|
3. Now heat oil in a pan, add the spices
|spices in the oil|
chopped onions, green chillies
|onions and green chillies added|

Add the above ingredients one by one along with salt allowing the onions to turn light brown and veggies to cook well.

and serve hot with raita.
