How To Make Vegetable Vermicelli Upma

Vegetable Vermicelli Upma- Healthy Breakfast Option

Hello IMBB Sweeties, :pompom:

Today am sharing one of my recipes that is loved by all my family members.
Vegetable Vermicelli Upma is a healthy South Indian breakfast dish that’s full of fiber and protein. Upma is made with cracked wheat or wheat grits; it gives us plenty of energy to start our day.

Instead of gorging on Parathas and kachoris in the morning that makes us pretty lethargic, it’s better to switch over to some healthy breakfast options that would give us energy to start our day with full vigor. Upma is made in several ways. The following recipe is my version of preparation. You can add other things too.



1-So we need Chopped onions, French beans, chilies, carrot, one tbsp of crushed ginger and garlic, crushed peanuts.


2- Then we need upma, I am using Mother’s recipes Upma, you can use others too.

3-Next we need vermicelli to enhance the taste of upma.


4-So first, roast the upma in Kadhai without using oil and remove it when it turns little brown.


5-Next roast the vermicelli for two minutes, remove it and keep it aside.


6-Add 1 tbsp of oil, first add bit of cumin seeds, mustard seeds and when they splutter add green chilies, 1 tbsp of crushed garlic and ginger, and crushed peanuts.


7-Add chopped onions.


8-Add a bit of sugar for browning the onions.


9-Add grated carrots into it.


10-Add chopped beans now.


11-Add salt according to your taste.


12-Add just a pinch of turmeric powder.


13-Stir the vegetables till they are cooked.


14-Add roasted vermicelli and upma and stir well.


15-Add two cups of water into it.


16-Continuosly stir to get a homogeneous mixture, upma soaks the water as you stir.




17-So our yummy Vegetable Vermicelli Upma is ready to be served. Hardly takes 15 minutes to prepare it.
I didn’t add roasted dal or curry leaves as the packet of Mother’s recipe Upma already contains dal and curry leaves. You can add green peas to enhance the taste of upma.
