Vegetable Vermicelli

I am sure your kids as well your other family members will like it. You can even pack this in their lunch box.

Vegetable Vermicelli is one of my favourite breakfast. I love vermicelli but only when it is loaded with veggies especially peas. No peas means no vermicelli for me. Peas render a very different and good taste to these vermicelli. As you know, Vermicelli is a very versatile ingredient and is used equally in sweet as well as savoury dishes.

Memory Lane

Long back, my grandmother used to make it at home by rubbing kneaded flour between thumb and fingers. What amazing speed she had and all used to be more or less of the same size. Those were then stored in airtight containers and made often. However, nowadays, we buy it from the market only.

Vegetable Vermicelli is being made in our house since ages but my dear hubby never had a liking for it so always made it in his absence. But one day, after having it at his aunt’s place he developed a liking for it. No doubt, she had made it very nicely. Even I liked her preparation very much. Her vermicelli had a bright red colour to it as if lots of red chillies had been added. But no, they were not spicy. Then?

Then, as usual, I asked her and the secret ingredient was tomatoes. Like, prior to that I never added tomatoes in my vermicelli. But such a distinctive difference in taste. Also, she made it in a pressure cooker just like Rice Pulao. Just 2 whistles and it’s done. Thereafter, I have been following her recipe only and now it gets on our dining table at least once a week.

My Tips For Vegetable Vermicelli

  • Roast vermicelli nicely to a bright golden colour. Though roasted vermicelli is easily available in the market. But you won’t believe that I roast it again to get a dark colour. Roasted heavily not only adds to the colour but makes a huge difference in the taste too.
  • For tempering, use caraway seeds (ajwain). Vermicelli made in caraway seeds has an altogether different taste then the ones made with cumin seeds or mustard seeds.
  • Add lots of veggies, especially peas. I store peas in the freezer, especially for this vermicelli.
  • Add tomato puree. You don’t have to saute his puree, just add it.

Now, let’s see the simple recipe of this simple Vegetable Vermicelli In Pressure Cooker.
