Vermicelli for Breakfast

This vermicelli uppuma is a staple in many south Indian homes, a quick breakfast dish that is satisfyingly simple to make.

  • Big onions, chopped
  • curry leaves
  • mustard seeds
  • grated ginger
  • urud dhal
  • dried red chilies
  • roasted vermicelli
  • a little water

Banana, on the side

  1. In hot oil, sputter the onions, curry leaves, mustard, ginger, chilies.
  2. Add roasted vermicelli, saute well.
  3. Add a little water and cover. The vermicelli will absorb the water as it cooks.
  4. Serve with sliced banana


We like to eat it with a banana, but it goes with anything – some yoghurt, or mango pickle … or just by itself !

Pix off the Net, with thanks.
