I tried this Vermicelli Upma/Pulav with a twist today. I grated some of the vegetables and added tomatillo in it. In addition to getting cooked fast, they get nicely combined uniformly and have fussy kids from not picking out the veggies. Most of all, this dish turned out to be just great with tomatillo imparting a slight tang contrasting with the spice of the chillies and the garam masala and ofcourse all the goodness of the veggies. This is a keeper recipe.
- The water measurement is approx. here. Please use your judgement such that the vermicelli is only slightly submerged in the water. Else the whole thing will become very mushy.
- The addition of Tomatillo sure was a good idea. It gives a slightly tang to the dish.
- Grating the veggies like potato and carrots saves frying time also, since they cook very fast this way.
