Vegetable Vermicelli

Hi!! The recipe I am posting today is of vegetable vermicelli. Vermicelli is very versatile it has a neutral taste and hence can be used in many different ways. I have earlier posted a recipe of vermicelli fritters, today’s recipe is focused on vermicelli as the main ingredient. We have vegetable pulao which is basically a rice dish this recipe is somewhat similar to a vegetable pulao but instead of rice we use vermicelli. Vermicelli is also known as “Little Worms” or rice noodles, it is a form of pasta thinner than spaghetti. We also know it as sevai. Sevai/Vermicelli is used to make kheer, upma and many other dishes. I have also posted a recipe of Sevaiyan Kheer on my blog. Lets get cooking this delicious easy Vegetable vermicelli. You can have it as breakfast or lunch or dinner. I have not used roasted vermicelli hence will roast it before cooking if you are using roasted vermicelli you can skip the roasting step.


Vermicelli – 1 cup

Onion (Finely Chopped) – 1 large

Tomato (Finely Chopped) – 1 medium

Capsicum (Finely chopped) – 1 medium

Broccoli (Finely Chopped) – 1/4 cup

Zucchini (Finely Chopped) 1/4 cup

Carrot (Finely Chopped) – 1/4 cup

Boiled Corn Kernels – 1/2 cup

Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp

Green Chilly (Finely Chopped) – 2 pieces

Soya Sauce – 1 tsp

Vinegar – 1 tsp

Red Chilly Sauce – 1 tsp

Water – 3-4 cups

Oil –  2 tbsp

Salt as per taste

Fresh coriander leaves for garnishing


1) In a fry pan take 1 tbsp oil and roast the vermicelli till light brown. Once done keep aside.

2) In a wok take the remaining 1 tbsp oil and let it become warm. Add the ginger-garlic paste and let it roast for a few seconds. Now add the green chilly paste and onions. Saute the onions till translucent.

3) Now add the tomatoes, capsicum, broccoli, zucchini and carrots and cover the wok and let it cook for 2-3 minutes on low flame. Once done add the soya sauce, chilly sauce, boiled corn kernels, salt and the roasted vermicelli. Now add the water (the water should be enough to immerse the entire mixture) and let it cook on medium flame for approximately 10-12 minutes. The vermicelli will start to soften and will soak all the water.

4) After 10 minutes add the vinegar and mix it well. Switch off the gas and serve hot garnished with fresh coriander leaves.
