Vermicelli pulao or semiya pulao or Sevai Pulao is an easy breakfast option. It doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to make this delicious and quick dish. To make it more healthy, add lots of vegetables to this.

I use homemade vermicelli. Making vermicelli by hand is not very easy job but I will give this credit to my mother in law who is an expert in this. But anyways this is easily available in market. So without any hard work or efforts you can make yummy dishes from this vermicelli.

Vermicelli is used in sweet dishes as well savoury dishes. This resembles maggi. So you can replace maggi with this healthier option. Again since you will add green veggies, you will give extra nutrition to your kid. This is an excellent tiffin box idea for kids.
