Semiya upma (Vermicelli upma) is another version of the popular south Indian breakfast recipe of upma. While upma is traditionally made from semolina (suji), making it with vermicelli tastes yummy too.
This upma is a much needed change from the regular breakfast menu. Vermicelli upma is a simple, healthy and light on stomach and can be prepared quickly. It requires very little effort and tastes delicious.
Here i prepared a plain Upma, for good nutrition add vegetables. Add Onions after step and let it fry for 2 min and add vegetables and cook for 2 min before adding water. I have added Coconut pieces as it tastes good.
