furthermore, i would like to add some tips and recommendations to this semiya upma recipe. firstly, i have roasted the semiya or vermicelli before using it in the upma. basically it helps to get rid of the raw smell. but as alternative you can also use store bought roasted bambino vermicelli which should skip additional step. secondly, i have not added finely chopped tomatoes while sautéing it with onions. the taste should be very similar to tomato bath or tomato upma recipe. lastly, and more importantly make sure to add the roasted vermicelli only when the water starts to boil. otherwise the end result may be mushy and sticky and may not be pleasant to be served.

  1. people don’t add capsicum, i feel it can spoil the taste sometimes. also try and add boiling water to the just sauted chilli and then add semiya, it gives the spice to semiya while it’s boiling and it’s really tastes good. this is only a suggestion to other regular readers. but, it’s hebbar ji steps you will go back to anything fails she is the lady helping me a lot after my mom.
