Super quick Lemony Vermicelli

I love making one pot meals and also love to have breakfast for dinner!!  This is one such simple recipes which takes less than 20 minutes to make.

  • Vermicelli - 4 cups (dry roasted)
  • Peas - 1 cup
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tea spoon
  • Curry leaves - 10-12
  • Olive Oil - 2 table spoons
  • Red chili flakes - 1 tea spoon
  • Lemon juice - 2 table spoons
  • Cilantro - 2 table spoons chopped fine
  • Water - 1 1/2 cups

To a pan on medium heat, add the Olive oil.  Let it heat.  Now, add the Mustard seeds and let them splutter.  Add the Curry leaves and the Peas.  Saute for 2-3 minutes.  Add the Vermicelli and Saute for 3 more minutes.  Now, add the water to the Vermicelli and close mix it well but, gently.  turn the heat to low and close the lid of the pan for about 4-5 minutes till the Vermicelli is translucent.  Now, add the Lemon and Cilantro.  Mix gently well (I think I just made up a new phrase) and take some aside for the non-spicy version.  Now add the Red Chili flakes and mix gently well.  Delicious Lemony Vermicelli is ready to be served!!
