Recently I got Ragi Vermicelli sent by my Mom from India. It’s a very healthy and alterative way of taking it. Just followed the instruction written on the cover.
|Ragi Vermicelli||1 pckt|
|Green Chili||3 nos|
|Curry Leaves||1 strand|
|Urad dhal||1/2 tsp|
|Channa dhal||1/2 tsp|
Soak Ragi Vermicelli for about 3 min in cold water & little salt. Dont soak more than 3 min as it will get mashed up. Drain the water using food strainer. Spread this in idili cooker plates / Veg steamer and cook for about 5 min in the steam.Chop Onions and split open green chili.
In a nonstick pan, heat oil. When hot, add mustard, urad dhal and channa dhal. When the mustard splutters, add green chili and curry leaves.Fry for 30 sec. Add onion & little salt. Fry this till onion is golden brown. Add the cooked Ragi Vermicelli and mix well. Add salt if required.
- Tomatoes can be added to enhance the taste.
- Kesari can also be prepared with this.
- By adding coconut, Sugar and Cardamom can be added instead of seasoning and made as sweet Vermicelli.
(*) A healthy dinner / breakfast recipe.
