Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 4 People
  • Oil- 1 tbsp
  • Onion, chopped- 1
  • Celery, chopped- 1 rib
  • Carrot, diced small- 1
  • Green pepper, chopped small- 1
  • Chili powder- 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder- ¼ tsp
  • Cumin powder- 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder- 1½ tsp
  • Garam Masala- ½ tsp
  • Salt- 1½ tsp
  • Vermicelli- 2 cups (cut into 2-inch slices)
  • Ghee or Butter- 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Water- 2 cups (or add chicken or vegetable stock)
  • Cilantro, chopped- ¼ cup
  1. Place a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add oil, let turn hot.
  3. Add onion, season with ½ tsp salt. Saute, let the onion turn translucent.
  4. Add the veggies, cook covered till veggies turn slightly soft. Any kind of mixed veggies can be added.
  5. Add the spices & 1 tsp salt, combine well.
  6. Add vermicelli, combine well.
  7. I've added the vermicelli that's cut into 2-inch slices, not the long vermicelli.
  8. Add ghee or butter, saute for 3 minutes till vermicelli turns aromatic.
  9. Add water, combine well.
  10. If you want this to be flavourful, chicken or vegetable stock can be added instead of water. Add less salt if adding the stock.
  11. Cook covered for a few minutes till vermicelli turns soft & the water dries off.
  12. Open the lid, cook for a few minutes till the water dries off.
  13. Remove the pan from the heat & keep it aside for a few minutes before serving- vermicelli will set well.
  14. This can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner.
Diced boneless chicken breast or thighs can be added along with the veggies & cook well.
Or add cooked shredded chicken after cooking the veggies.
