Semia/Vermicelli Upma

i always use to do semia upma without adding vegetables or onions..adding raisins it tastes a little sweet,i love that taste rather than veggies..i feel that ghee and raisins are the criteria of this upma..you can also try this simple upma..

ingredients
vermicelli(semia)-1 cup
slitted green chillies-4
ginger-1inch piece chopped
grated coconut-1cup
cashewnuts-5or6 split into halves
raisins-1 tab sp
ghee-1 to 2 tab sp
mustard-1/2tsp
cumin seeds-1/4tsp
water-2 cups
salt
oil





method
1.in a pan add 1tab sp ghee and fry the vermicelli untill it reaches brown color..switch off the flame ..keep aside..or (you can use store bought fried vermicelli..i have used this instant one)

2.heat a wok put some oil, add mustard,cumin,green chillies,ginger,nuts,raisins and finally curryleaves.



3.when raisins become fluffy add 2cups of water along with salt..bring to boil..add a handful of grated coconut in the boiling water and let it boil again for 1mnt..

4.add fried vermicelli and stir well, cover it and cook on low fire till done..


5.uncover and add rest of the coconut scrapings and a spoonful of ghee on top and mix gently..switch off and serve on plate..

Thank you LEELA for your special invitation to me to your place for taking this "Leela's Special Upma".

I have written a very big article in TAMIL about my Cooking Experiences / Likes / Dislikes etc., in a very jovial manner for which so many people have offered their comments & it was very well appreciated by one & all.

However, you may not be able to understand it correctly, as it is written by me in Tamil Language.
I feel sorry for that.

If possible you may take the help of others who knows Tamil as well as your own language.
