Vermicelli pulao (Semiya Vegetable Pulao)

Before i even thought about making this, myself and my husband we had a serious discussion for fixing on a dinner menu. We both gave veto to dosa's, idli's, upma's and roti's, Phewww !! i know there are too many other things to worry about like treasure hunting all the potatoes my daughter had hidden in the kitchen cabinets :D

But then i remember seeing all the amazing pulao & biriyani recipies made with vermicelli. This is the first time i made this and definitely wont be the last time. Its easy to make and more importantly yumm!

Preparation time: 10 mins
cooking time: 15 mins
Serves : 3 to 4


For tempering:
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Whole garam masalas (Bay leaf, Cloves, cinammon sticks) - 2 each
  • Cumin seeds / jeera - 1 tsp
  • Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
  • Green chilli - 2 (cut vertically)
  • Chopped cashew nut (Optional)
Other Ingredients:
  • Roasted Vermicelli (Semiya) - 1 1/2 cup
  • Finely chopped / diced vegetables - 2 cups (Carrots, Bell peppers, Potato, Green peas)
  • Chopped Onion - 1/4 cup
  • Tomato - 1 
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
  • Mint leaves - 15 to 20
  • Thin coconut milk - 1 cup + 2 cups water
  • salt - to taste

I just made my version of pulao with little variations. Its super simple and delicious and mainly kid friendly (Yes, every meal we decide it mostly will be our daughter friendly) 

In a kadai add ghee and once hot saute all the garam masalas, nuts and green chilli. In a minute add onion and saute until the raw smell is gone. Then goes the tomatoes and other vegetables

Once the veggies are cooked add roasted vermicelli and give a good mix. Now add coconut milk and water, then cover & cook it for 5 to 10 mins by stirring occasionally in between. when its almost done add mint leaves and mix. 

Tadda !! Lip smacking meal is ready in no time.

  • Make sure to keep stirring occasionally to avoid burnt pulao.
  • choice of veggies can be personalized
  • And yes not to forget mint makes it taste wonderful. 
Enjoy and Happy cooking!
