Shavige upittu

Shavige (Vermicelli) upma is yet another dish from the Karnataka. Back home mum & grand mum prepare fresh shavige & then make it either sweet or spicy. Here I don't have the machine to make fresh shavige, so used the rice noodles we get in the market.

Ingredients: -
1 cup Vermicelli
1 small sized onion, finely chopped
grated carrot
fist full of peas
1 medium sized potato, sliced
1 medium sized capsicum, cut lengthwise
2-3 green chilies
1 tbsp ground nuts
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Udhina bele
1 tsp Kadle bele
1 tsp Garam masala
2 tsp fresh Lemon juice
Grated coconut & Coriander leaves for garnishing

Method: -
1. Take vermicelli and break it into small pieces.
2. In a microwaveable vessel, put the vermicelli & just enough water so that it gets covered.
3. Microwave for 5 minutes & stain water. Keep it aside to cooling.
4. Heat oil in a pan.
5. Add mustard seeds & when they pop, add ground nuts, udhina bele, kadle bele & chillies.
6. Add onion & saute for a minute or two.
7. Add grated carrot, fresh peas, potatoes & capsicum.
8. Add salt & garam masala.
9. Keep stirring occasionally until all done.
10. Finally, add the cooked vermicelli into it & mix well. Add lemon juice.
11.Garnish with roasted cashew nuts, grated coconut & coriander leaves.
