Rice Vermicelli is a kind of thin Noodles made from Rice. This particular dish is fat free and quite healthy. This is a speciality of Karnataka, a southern state in India. Spicy Vermicelli is mostly eaten as a breakfast item but can be a full meal for any time of the day!



Preparation Time:

10 minutes.

Cooking Time:

15 minutes


Rice Vermicelli - 2 nest
 Oil - 4 tbsp 
 Mustard Seeds - ½ tsp 
 Turmeric Powder - ½ tsp 
 Asafoetida - ¼ tsp 
 Green Chillies finely chopped - 1 
 Onions finely chopped - 1 cup 
 Carrot shredded - 1 cup 
 Green Peas - ¼ cup 
 A handful of Bean Sprouts 
 Salt to taste 
 Lemon Juice - ½ of a Lemon 
 Chopped Spring Onion Greens for garnishing 


• Boil Water in a large pan and add Vermicelli to this and cook for 5 minutes (Water quantity should be such that the Vermicelli is completely immersed in Water). Drain and run under tap Water - this is to avoid it from becoming sticky. Keep this aside.

• Heat Oil in a pan, add Mustard Seeds and allow to it to splutter. Then add Turmeric Powder, Asafoetida and Green Chillies and fry for few seconds.

• Then add Onions and sauté till transparent. Next add Carrot, Peas and stir fry till they are cooked but not mushy. Next add Bean Sprouts and continue stir frying for 2-3 minutes.

• Add the cooked Vermicelli, Salt and mix well on low flame.

• Finish it with a dash of Lemon Juice and chopped Greens.
