Shavige Uppittu (Vermicelli Upma)

Quick and easy to whip up, this dish is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner :)

You will need:

1 Cup Vermicelli (Bambino/MTR brand)
3 tsp Oil
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Urad Dal
1 tsp Chana Dal
½ tsp Turmeric Powder
4 Green chillies, slit
Few curry leaves
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 Green Bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tsp Lemon juice
Chopped corriander
Salt to taste

Set a pot of water to boil.

Heat one tsp of oil in a pan. Add the vermicelli and sauté for a couple of minutes till light brown. Turn off heat and add this to the boiling water. Cook vermicelli for 6-8 minutes till transparent and cooked through. Drain and reserve.

Heat remaining oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, urad and chana dals. Saute till mustard splutters. Add the green chillies and curry leaves, sauté for a few seconds and add the sliced onions and bell peppers. Saute till onions are soft and bell peppers are cooked through. Now add the turmeric powder and sauté for a minute more. Add the drained vermicelli and combine. Season with salt, add the lemon juice and garnish with chopped coriander. Serve immediately.

The fresh lemon juice and corriander add a burst of flavour to every bite.
