Vermicelli Biryani/ Semiya Biryani
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?
My vermicelli is handmade by my mother-in-law. I must admire her expertise and speed in But you can anyways get that in any supermarket. Add whatever vegetable you feel your kid loves.
From vermicelli you can make vermicelli upma, vermicelli pulao and vermicelli biryani. Although there is little difference in method and spices we use for different recipes. Also it makes great sweet dessert or pudding. This vermicelli pudding just takes 5 minutes. Infact any vermicelli dish is quick as it takes - 5 minutes to get cooked.
This is a 10 - 15 minutes recipe. What else we need on lazy mornings? A breakfast that is tasty and nutritious and quick.
