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.
