Look at this colourful vermicelli biryani. Tempting!!
Also it has all nutrition of green veggies like green peas, potatoes, spinach, carrots, beans, red bell pepper & yellow bell pepper. Again I would say that this vermicelli is hand made and home made.
Vermicelli biryani is an easy breakfast recipe which is healthy and kids friendly. I have added shahi biryani masala to the dish. This added extra flavor to the dish. You can add simply maggi magic masala also to the vermicelli for kids tiffin box. Since it looks like that of maggie you can replace maggie with this recipe. In many schools maggie is not allowed in tiffin box. But you can give this in place of maggie. This is nutritious and filling also.
What are other vermicelli dishes we can make?

Vermicelli pudding is one dessert which are very common in every house in India. This is easy to make and readily available in market. It takes hardly 10 minutes to prepare 4 servings of this pudding. It tastes great when chilled. Our food menu does not complete without desserts. Since this is an easy option and tastes equally great I prefer making this pudding for my family. Only one step is boil the vermicelli in milk for 10 minutes till they are soft. Add sugar and chopped dry fruits. That’s it. Your sweet dish is ready now. You can add 1 tsp ghee or purified butter to this. But I prefer to keep it simple without ghee. These vermicellis are roasted and hence does not require further sauteing. If you are using market bought ones then first fry for 1 minute in ghee and then add milk to it and simmer.
Yes, one thing special about this recipe is the vermicelli used here are hand made, home made by my mother-in-law. I tried learning this making of vermicelli from her this summer vacation. No doubt he has an expertise and can’t really match to her speed. “Practice makes a man perfect” so true.
I just loved this recipe vermicelli green peas pulao. When I made on lazy sunday morning for breakfast, I din’t know it will turn out with such divine taste. I had some frozen green peas. The vermicelli I have used in the recipe are again handmade (homemade). Recently I have learned this making of vermicelli from my mother-in-law when I visited hometown for vacation. I’m happy and satisfied that I learned one more skill. We made vermicelli from around 1 kg flour. No doubt I can’t match to my mother-in-law’s speed as she is an expert in this. But somehow I learned to do the same with little more time. It was time consuming task and requires patience. Someday I will share how to make this vermicelli at home.
