Vermecili Pulav

Vermecili Pulav

One of the quick breakfast dish which I make often. I use roasted vermecili which saves the roasting time. If you are using non roasted vermecili, please add 2tsp oil or ghee and roast it on medium flame for about 5min and keep aside. This can be packed in lunch box as well. Only precaution to be taken is while adding water to avoid it from becoming sticky.

Ingredients required-

  1. Oil- 3tsp
  2. Ginger- small piece
  3. Garlic-8-10 pods
  4. Onion- 1big
  5. Vegetables (beans, carrots, baby corn, capsicum, green peas etc) – 1 cup
  6. Vermecili 1.5 cup
  7. Water
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Turmeric powder- 1/2tsp
  10. Chilly powder- about 2tsp
  11. Garam masala – 2 tsp
  12. Coriander leaves
  13. Green chilly- 2

Method of preparation-

  • Firstly chop onion and other vegetables such as beans, carrots, baby corn, Cauliflower, capsicum. You can add as per availability. Make sure to chop them into tiny pieces.
  • Now take a pan and add finely chopped ginger and garlic
